BVN-NIN Linkage: A Digital Conundrum Amidst Connectivity Woes

The CBN directed bank customers to link their BVN with NIN before Friday. If not, they could suffer disruptions in banking activities. We have so many national numbers instead of one verifiable number in other climes.

One of the ways to ease in-person appearance at banks is to use the online portal provided by the banks. But internet connectivity across networks has failed simultaneously in the last few days. Is it that the gods of communication are on strike, too, or is there an unknown censorship going on because of the NLC strike?

Tuesday and Wednesday are strike days. March 1, 2024, could, therefore, witness another chaotic surge in in-person banking. That could be another confusion on the horizon, and Nigerians may be facing weeks of barricaded bank gates with huge man-hour losses. Na wa!

Grace and peace!!!
