Abuja - The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) would on February 14, 2014, officially launch the second phase of the biometric details of all bank customers in the country.
The project is to ensure that every customer of a bank, a micro finance company or any other financial system, is captured on a central data-base, reports Vanguard.
Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, CBN’s governor noted that once a customer of a bank is captured in the data base, he/she will need no form of identity to collect or pay cash anywhere in Nigeria.
He said the project, when it goes live, will promote the use of thumbprint as major means of identification in banks and ATMs.
