Customers of First Bank who make use its FirstMobile App will now be able to carry out daily transactions on the app worth a maximum of ₦1 million. This represents a doubling of the limit for transactions, which until recently was fixed at ₦500,000. The bank has also increased the maximum daily amount of money transferrable through the app to First Bank accounts and other bank accounts without a token to ₦150,000.
