Earlier today, Naij.com had gone to various banks to see how people were reacting to threats that the registration exercise would close today and there was a long queue as bank account holders stormed various banks across the country to get their registration done.
The BVN registration had been on for over a year now, but many Nigerians did not take it seriously until it was clear that the end of the registration exercise was quite near.
