The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has approved a centre to conduct biometric verification for Nigerians in South Africa.
According to the Nigeria`s Consul General in South Africa, Uche Ajulu-Okeke, the Central Bank of Nigeria has approved a centre to conduct biometric verification for Nigerians in South Africa.
She said in Johannesburg that the CBN was worried about the number of Nigerians abroad not captured in the Bank Verification Number exercise.
She said: “The good news is that from South Africa, Nigerians can monitor their accounts at home and feel relaxed that their accounts will not be closed.”
Ajulu-Okeke further revealed that the bank approved that the centre, located in Johannesburg, should carry out the exercise to enable Nigerians in South Africa with accounts at home be captured for the BVN.
