I saw this somewhere and thought I should share it here.
The expiration for Bank Verification Number is on the 31st of October, 2015 as directed by the Central Bank of Nigeria. Which means if you don't have it as a Nigerian, you won't be able to access your Nigerian bank account again. In view of that some of the staffs of Ecobank Nigeria are in Ghana to register Nigerians that has not registered the BVN and they are to leave Ghana on the 15th of October.
Registration is absolutely FREE!!!
You can also open a new bank account with them called DIASPORAN acct for those that don't have a bank account.
