Nigerians living in Scandinavia will be able to have their Bank Verification Number(BVN) registration done without traveling to Nigeria and when all is perfected, the details will be communicated across  to all Nigerians residing in Scandinavia, says Ayoola Lawal, the chairman/coordinator of All Progressives Congress Scandinavian Chapter.
In a release to Nordic Africa News, Mr. Lawal said that that information was given him by the head of the Nigerian mission in Scandinavia, Minister Jane Ndem when he paid a courtesy call on her at the Embassy of Nigeria in Stockholm, Sweden.
The release added that Mrs. Ndem assured that the mission will always see to the welfare and support for all Nigerians living in Scandinavia and also encourage any project that will lead to a better Nigeria and strengthen the bilateral relations with Scandinavia countries.
During the courtesy call, the issue of the BVN for the Nigerians living in Scandinavia and the agitation about Rayfield Consult in Nigeria by Nigerians living in Finland were discussed.
Attention was drawn by Mrs Ndem to the fact that Finland or any other country has the right to decide on the modality for document verification, the release added.
APC Scandinavia is looking forward to an approach to addressing the issue of exorbitant fees (500 Euro as reported) charged by the verification company, Rayfield Consult. Hence, APC Scandinavia is seeking the indulgence, cooperation and support of Nigerians  living in Finland on the matter. We hope to work with other relevant organization to bring about an amicable resolution, the release noted.

    for those expecting a reply from the nigerian embassy regarding bvn registration or any questions at all, i will advise you not to waste your time. It’s much more easier to thread a needle in the dark than expect help from an unreliable embassy. One would think that since it is in another country, they will do things differently but thats a lie. They are just as incompetent as they are back home. If you have ever been to their office in Stockholm for anything from renewing your passport or getting a new one, you will be surprised at the tone at which they speak to you like you are bothering them. The degree of unprofessionalism of these people knows no bounds. I have written them several messages since 2017 and i still have not received a reply or even a confirmation that my messages was received and we are in 2019 currently lol. I have tried their phone number and even though i started to call the line the moment the call time started, nobody ever picked up. Most Nigerians never strive to break that jinx or stereotypes that they are incompetent or unreliable and am talking about people who have a little power on their hands. Let me stop my rant as its coming from an angry place knowing that these are my fellow nigerians. If any of you found a different way to handle your BVN registration in Sweden or the closest places around, please let us know cos we need to help each other if these incompetent embassy cant help.
