CBN extends BVN registration for Nigerians in diaspora

By The Citizen

The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has extended the Bank Verification Number, BVN, registration exercise for Nigerian Banks' Customers in the Diaspora to June 30, 2016.

According to a circular posted on the banks' website, Thursday, the decision to extend the deadline which was initially January 31, was as result of low responses from the affected banks' customers.

The apex bank said it discovered from a survey it conducted, that the low responses could be due to inadequate information and lack of accessibility to registration centres in some countries with large Nigerian populations.

It therefore, decided to publish detailed addressed of the BVN registration centres in countries of their residence.
