“Any successful applicant that does not receive a credit alert within 48 hours” should ask for resolution, Mr Okorafor said.

He affirmed that the apex bank had set aside the initial condition demanding provision of guarantors by households and MSMEs seeking the facility in order to make the application process easier for those who had met all the requirements but were yet to receive the money.

The CBN spokesman stated that palliatives were intended as loans and should not be regarded as grants, further saying that households and entrepreneurs should leverage the facility to revitalise their businesses and contribute to steering the country away from recession.
