Oct 31 remains deadline for BVN registration – CBN

The Central Bank of Nigeria says October 31 remains the deadline for bank customers to obtain their Bank Verification Numbers.

Director, Banking and Payment System Department of CBN, Mr Dipo Fatokun, re-affirmed this while speaking to journalists on Wednesday in Abuja.

Fatokun said at the deadline, bank customers that had not enrolled for BVN would not be able to access their accounts.

He added, “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.”
