Depositors of failed banks in the country may have a new reason to smile as the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) has commenced verification exercises for depositors of 14 failed banks and 22 Microfinance Banks (MFBs).

This was disclosed in a statement signed by Bashir Nuhu, director, Communication and Public Affairs Department.

According to the NDIC, the verification exercise is geared towards the payment of insured sums to eligible depositors.

Depositors of the affected MFBs whose operating licences were recently revoked by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have been advised to visit the closed banks’ addresses and be verified by the NDIC’s officials.
