CBN Revokes Licences of 139 Microfinance Banks, 4 PMBs, 3 Finance Companies

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has taken action against several financial institutions in the country, revoking the licences of 139 microfinance banks, four primary mortgage banks, and three finance companies.

The decision was made due to the institutions failing to carry out the type of business for which their licences were issued for a continuous period of six months.

This contravenes the Banks and other Financial Institutions Act (BOFIA), 2020 and the Revised Regulatory and Supervisory Guidelines for Microfinance Banks in Nigeria.

The CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, exercised the powers conferred on the Central Bank of Nigeria under Section 12 of BOFIA 2020, Act No.5 to revoke the licences.

The official gazette for the last batch of revoked licences stated that the banks had either remained inactive, insolvent, failed to render returns, closed shop, or ceased to carry on the type of banking business for which they were licensed for more than six months.

Below is the list of the affected banks:
