There appears to be a large scale of unawareness on this subject. I first heard of it via a colleague at work in the diaspora late last year. The colleague then reminded me early this year, to check on my plans. For those who haven't heard, BVN = Bank Verification Number. CBN has introduced this as a means of capturing digital bio-data of anyone operating a Bank Account in Nigeria. A person only needs to complete the process once at any branch of his/her Bank in Nigeria. The BVN issued by the CBN can then be presented to other Banks where the individual has other accounts. As I found myself being the bearer of the information to other family and friends both in Nigeria and the diaspora, I thought sticking it out here may help to mobilise more participation. The scheme has a closing date of 30 June 2015. Who knows what sanctions may befall those who haven't complied by then? Man-know-man may not be useful then.
