Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, who disclosed this at the CBN and World Economic Forum meeting theme in Abuja, said !
“We will officially launch the 2nd phase of the biometric data base on February 14, 2014 with all head offices of banks and a branch of the banks,” said Sanusi at the forum, tagged “Promoting Global Financial Inclusion: Overcoming Key Barriers Through Public-Private Collaboration”.

The project, according to him, is expected to provide a centralised platform through which banks might enrol and uniquely verify the identity of each customer through ‘know your customer,’ KYC, purposes, perform credit checks, verify customer’s integrity and authenticate customers from a point of transaction device.

Sanusi said the project represented a major landmark in the Bankers Committee’s efforts at promoting financial inclusion drive, expanding banking services, access to credit and more importantly, dealing with money laundering and other financial industry problems.

He explained that the CBN and the banks decided to embark on the project as a proactive strategy to enhance the integrity of banking services delivery by building a reliable customer identification system which would help in complementing the other projects being embarked upon by various government agencies.
