The Nigerian government has directed account holders in financial institutions across the country to complete a new “self-certification” form.
The Nigerian government made this known Thursday via its verified handle, @NigeriaGov.
In a series of tweets, the government said the new forms must be obtained, completed, and submitted by all account holders in financial institutions, including banks and insurance companies.
The form must be completed in order to enable financial institutions in Nigeria carry out due diligence in line with extant tax regulations, the government said.
“This is to notify the general public that all account holders in financial institutions (banks, insurance companies, etc) are required to obtain, complete and submit self-certification forms to their respective financial institutions,” the tweet said.
