CBN Issues July 7 Deadline To PoS Operators For Registration

The Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) has issued a two-month deadline for Point of Sales (PoS) operators to complete registration with the Corporate Affairs Corporation (CAC).

This was revealed during a meeting between Fintechs and the Registrar-General/Chief Executive Officer of the CAC, Hussaini Magaji (SAN), in Abuja on Tuesday.

Speaking at the event, the CAC boss said the two-month timeline to register their agents, merchants and individuals with the commission, was in line with legal requirements and the directives of the apex bank.

In a statement titled ‘CAC, PoS OPERATORS AGREE TO TWO-MONTH DEADLINE TO REGISTER THEIR AGENTS AND MERCHANTS TO STRENGTHEN THE FINTECH INDUSTRY’, the CAC boss said the measure is aimed at safeguarding the businesses of Fintech’s customers and strengthening the economy.

He further stressed that the action was equally backed by Section 863, Subsection 1 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, CAMA 2020, as well as the 2013 CBN guidelines on agent banking.

Magaji explained further that the timeline for the registration which will expire on July 7, 2024, was not targeted at any groups or individuals but genuinely aimed at protecting businesses.

In his remarks, the Special Adviser to the President on ICT Development and Innovation, Tokoni Peter, pledged to ensure smooth facilitation of the process in line with the Renewed Hope Initiative of the present administration.

The representatives of Opay, Momba, Palmpay Ltd, Pay Stack, Fair Money MFB, Monie Point and Teasy Pay present at the event, later signed up for a document to support the project.
