Customers Storm Banks For BVN Enrollment As Deadline Approaches

FG Takes Ownership Of Funds Held In Bank Accounts Not Linked To BVNs

With less than a week to the deadline of the enrollment for the Bank Verification Number (BVN), hoards of customers in Makurdi have on Monday besieged their banks to enroll for the exercise.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), while many customers had done their registration, a good number of them were yet to comply with the central bank’s directive.

Most customers, it was learnt, were unable to participate in the exercise early enough because of their crowded schedules.

A First Bank customer, Mrs. Dorcas Atim, complained that she just gave birth when the exercise commenced, hence her inability to do the verification earlier than now.

”I was doing everything by myself and as such I had little or no time to spare for other things other than my domestic choirs which were time consuming,” she said.

A UBA customer, Mr Atom Iordaa, disclosed that the demanding nature of his job was the reason why he was unable to register in time.

“I am only free during weekends, but banks do not transact businesses during weekends, but since they said that one cannot transact businesses after the deadline, my Oga, permitted me to come and be captured,’’ he said.

At GTB, a customer, Mrs Rose Otu, said she thought the last minute registration would not be as time consuming because most people would have captured.

“It is unfortunate that l miscalculated that the queue will not be long. It is like many people have that same reasoning of coming now as l have.

“If only they will use the data gathered to forestall bank fraud, it will not be a futile effort, but how will they capture the aged, those on sick bed and those in the Diaspora?’’ She concluded.

It should be noted that the deadline for the exercise is June 30, 2015.
