FG Releases Updated List of Approved Digital Money Lenders and Banks in Nigeria, Opay Still Not Included in New List.

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has released the full names of approved loan apps in Nigeria

FCCPC said the loan apps approval followed its March 27, 2023, deadline for them to obtain certification to operate

Also, Google, in an update, said it would remove unapproved loan apps from its store

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has released a new list and added about 173 companies approved to operate as loan apps and digital money lenders.

The development follows the March 27, 2023, deadline given by FCCPC for registering the companies.

Over 100 apps receive FG’s approval

About 119 of the companies received full approval, and 54 got conditional approval pending when they fulfil other terms and conditions set by the Commission, a Nairametrics report said.

After issuing updates on loan apps in Nigeria, Google will delist the unregistered apps from its play store, asking them to provide approval certification from FCCPC or face removal.

Google had slated January 31, 2023, as the deadline for the apps’ removal before moving it to March 27.

FCCPC clarifies the reason for the approval

According to FCCPC, it drew up the Limited Interim Regulatory/Registration Framework and Guidelines for Digital Lending of 2022 in partnership with the Joint Task Force (JTF) to promote transparency, fairness, and beneficial alternatives to lending opportunities in Nigeria.

The activities of loan apps in Nigeria necessitated FCCPC’s recent action following a proliferation of illegal loan apps in Nigeria, with consumers reporting rights violations and sharp practices, among others.

Findings have shown that interest rates charged by loan apps violate lending ethics. They also involve in the public humiliation of defaulters and engage in privacy violations.
