FG apologise for asking bank account holders to re-register their details again. The Federal government’s apology is coming hours after it earlier asked all account holders in banks, including insurance companies, to fill and submit a Self-Confirmation form.
FG gave the order was given despite the possession of the Bank Verification Number and the National Identification Number by account holders on Thursday.
The Nigerian government threatened to block access to defaulters’ accounts or impose a monetary penalty if anyone fails to re-register.
However, in a tweet on Friday, the government apologised for misinformation.
We apologise for the misleading tweets (now deleted) that went up yesterday, regarding the completion of self-certification forms by Reportable Persons. The message contained in the @firsNigeria Notice does not apply to everybody. FIRS will issue appropriate clarification shortly.
