The Federal Government of Nigeria has apologized on Twitter after Nigerians expressed outrage following an announcement made via its social media handle.
In the apology, it was explained that this registration does not apply to “everybody”.
The FG had announced that all account holders in financial Institutions are to undergo another compulsory registration exercise different from BVN, baring which there will be consequences.
The tweets had asked Nigerians to pick up self-certification forms from their financial institutions, complete them, and return.

This had sparked outrage on social media as Nigerians reacted, asking why everyone has to go to their banks again to undergo the rigorous exercise of registering again and what the usefulness of BVN and National Identity Numbers was.
