The CBN also announced that all successful applicants under the CBN COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility whose accounts had not been credited should go to NIRSAL MFB online portal  and input their account details in any bank of their choice.

The apex bank also said “all successful Household and SME applicants who have submitted their account details for the CBN N50bn COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility should expect their accounts to be credited within 48 hours of such submission” adding that if that doesn’t happen, they should call the facility hotline.
