Nigerians react as FG set to replace BVN with NIN
Minister of communications and digital economy Isa Pantami has revealed that there are plans to replace the bank verification numbers (BVN) with the national identity numbers (NIN).
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) launched the BVN in 2014 to protect customer’s transactions
The NIN is the primary and legal identity of all Nigerians according to the minister who said the BVN is not established by law.

They want to replace BVN with NIN? Can't wait for the next Minister of whatever to replace NIN with another made up acronym

I randomly remember when Bashir said Pantami was intelligent for asking 200m Nigerians to register for NIN in two weeks. The intelligent Pantami is now saying they might replace BVN with NIN, I wonder what it means to be intelligent under Buhari led administration.

The most senseless government. If you want to replace BVN with NIN, why not convert the current BVN to NIN and ask those who don’t have to go do theirs. BVN has your biometrics (finger prints and pictures). These old people need to leave office.

FG may replace BVN with NIN ~ Pantami.
BVN has been used to checkmate massive corruption by individuals, now the govt. wants to change BVN to NIN.
Are they really fighting corruption?
