He added that the new domestic card scheme is an effort to improve financial inclusion in the country and make transactions more convenient and secure for people.

According to Emefiele, the main challenges that have limited the inclusion of Nigerians in the card payment system are the high cost of card services due to foreign exchange requirements of international card schemes and that existing card products do not cater to the specific needs of the Nigerian market.
