The gazette said the licences of the financial institutions were revoked because they either remained inactive, insolvent, failed to render returns, closed shop, or ceased to carry on the type of banking business for which they were licensed for more than six months in contravention of the BOFIA 2020 and the Revised Regulatory and Supervisory Guidelines for Microfinance Banks in Nigeria, among other infractions.
