He said “ any successful applicant that does not receive a credit alert within 48 hours ” should call for resolution.
He noted that the CBN had waived the requirements for the provision of guarantors by households and small and medium enterprises applying for the facility worth N 50bn .
Okorafor said the bank ’ s move was meant to assuage the concerns of those who had fulfilled all requirements for the loan but were yet to have their accounts credited , particularly as other persons had begun to receive credit alerts .
He reiterated that the palliatives being disbursed were loans and should not be taken as grants.
The apex bank ’ s spokesman urged eligible households and small businesses to take advantage of the palliative to revive their businesses and contribute to steering Nigeria away from recession .
The CBN had on March 23 unveiled guidelines for the implementation of the N 50bn Targeted Credit Facility as a stimulus package to support households and micro, small and medium enterprises hit by the COVID – 19 pandemic .
Based on the CBN guidelines , eligible beneficiaries of the fund are households with verifiable evidence of livelihood , adversely impacted by COVID – 19 , and existing enterprises with verifiable evidence of activities , adversely affected by the pandemic .
