(JUST IN) Nigerian Government Apologises For Ordering All Banks, Account Holders To Re-register

 



ABUJA, NIGERIA - For asking all account holders in the country’s financial institutions to register their details again, the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), led by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday (today) tendered it's unreserved apologies.


It would be recalled that the FGN had prior to this time requested all account holders in financial institutions in Nigeria, including insurance companies, to fill and submit a Self-Confirmation form.


The order was given despite the possession of the Bank Verification Number and the National Identification Number by account holders on Thursday.


Failure to do so, the Nigerian government threatened to block access to defaulters’ accounts or impose a monetary penalty.


The order to fill another Self-Confirmation form, despite the existing BVN and NIN, had attracted condemnations on social media.


However, in a tweet on Friday, the government apologised for misinformation.


It tweeted, “We apologise for the misleading tweets (now deleted) that went up yesterday, regarding the completion of self-certification forms by Reportable Persons. The message contained in the @firsNigeria Notice does not apply to everybody. FIRS will issue appropriate clarification shortly.”
