CBN Againn, ah ah

What will Nigerians not hear from this mighty CBN, when we are trying to adapt to this new cashless policy, another one is springing up.Yesterday, CBN imposed a fresh condition necessary for owning a bank account and operating it in the country, and that is the National Identity Number,NIN. wow i guess every body is getting speechless...well don't get yourself worked up ok, as this is taking effect from January 8, 2013, ''WHEW''guess some one is breathing a relief right, hahaha....well another shocker is that already existing customers would have to undergo enrollment exercise where customers biometrics will be captured and they will in turn be issued NIN as well as General Purpose Identity Card...
This enrollment exercise is scheduled to start September 1 and will run for Three(3) months..the exercise is being handled by CBN in conjunction with the National Identity Management Commission NIMC, and the Nigerian Interbank Settlement System peeps get yourself ready don't say i didnt inform you...*winks*
