BVN-NIN Banks Linkage: ATCIS-Nigeria seeks 3-month extension

The Association of Telephone, Cable TV and Internet Subscribers of Nigeria (ATCIS-Nigeria) has called for a three-month extension of the Bank Verification Number (BVN) and National Identity Number (NIN) linkage to individual and corporate accounts.


The National President of ATCIS-Nigeria, Sina Bilesanmi,  made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.


The deadline had elapsed on March 1.


Bilesanmi urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to extend the deadline in order not to compound citizens’ plight with the rigorous process involved in linking their accounts.


He expressed dissatisfaction with the process that account holders went through just to link BVN/NIN to their accounts considering the bad network experienced by telecoms in the country..
