In his role, Ibrahim will bring his wealth of experience and expertise in the financial technology sector to drive Tingg and Cellulant to new heights in the Nigerian market. His expertise spans across fintech, banking, oil and gas, and pharmaceutical industries.

Before joining Cellulant, Ibrahim worked as the General Manager for VigiPay at The Venture Garden Group, Africa’s largest technology holding company. At Vigipay, he managed the company’s cross-border payment platform, ensuring real-time termination into multiple corridors in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Ibrahim holds a Master’s in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s in Science from Obafemi Awolowo University. He is also certified in fraud detection, prevention, and control and project management.

“We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Ibrahim as General Manager for Cellulant in Nigeria,” said Sike Bamisebi, Cellulant’s Group Chief Business Officer. “As a cutting-edge payments technology company, we believe that our innovative solutions are revolutionizing the financial industry and empowering the people of Nigeria to digitize their payments across the board. We look forward to a bright future for the company and its customers.”

This appointment comes as Tingg by Cellulant has witnessed rapid adoption in Nigeria over the past year. For example, its proximity payments solution, Instore, has experienced 200% growth in the last 6 months alone. Tingg is the payments partner for many Nigerian businesses such as GIG Logistics, Perfect Trust Cosmetics, Simba Group, Chicken Republic, and global companies such as Emirates, Bolt, and PepsiCo.

The platform enables businesses across Nigeria – in the airline, QSR, e-commerce, ride-hailing, retail, and remittances sectors – to pay and get paid offline and online seamlessly. The platform also enables businesses to easily keep track of transactions, reconcile accounts, and make timely payments. The payments gateway provides merchants with a snapshot of their business performance across multiple locations.

“I am honored to join the team of innovative thinkers at Cellulant and am eager to bring my expertise to the table to enhance the payments landscape in the country,” said Ibrahim. “I am confident that our efforts in increasing the quality of services and products we offer our customers will lead to greater financial inclusion, accessibility, and stability for all Nigerians.”
