While Nigerians at home get to do their BVN registration free of charge, same cannot be said for those abroad.
Nigerians in Diaspora, particularly in London, United Kingdom, have expressed frustration over the compulsory payment of £30 (about N10, 000) for the registration of the Bank Verification Number, as directed by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Miffed by such insensitivity, some of them during the week stormed the Nigeria High Commission in London to protest against the directive of the apex bank.
Others took to various social media platforms to vent their anger.
The CBN had recently extended the deadline for the BVN registration from June 30 to October 31, 2015 as disclosed in a circular issued to all deposit money banks operating in the country.
