So if you still done yours, you should now.
The Central Bank of Nigeria has said that there is no going back on the October 31 deadline for bank customers to obtain their Bank Verification Numbers (BVN).
This was reiterated by Dipo Fatokun, Director, Banking and Payment System Department (BPSD) of CBN on Wednesday in Abuja, who stated that after the deadline, bank customers that had not enrolled for BVN would not be able to access their accounts.
“Last week Friday the bankers communicated that there is no extension on the BVN.
“If you have not registered go and register and of course submit your BVN to your bank, no extension on the deadline of October 31.
“By November 1 if you don’t have a BVN you won’t be able to operate your account, but that does not mean that your money will be confiscated as some people have said.
“No, what it means is that you should go and do your BVN, once you do your BVN and you link it to your account, you continue to operate your account.’’
