SERAP Issues FG 48-hour Ultimatum To Reverse Cybersecurity Levy

Published

on

 

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has given the federal government a 48-hour deadline to withdraw the 0.5 per cent cybersecurity levy imposed on Nigerians.

It was earlier reported that apex bank on Monday ordered banks to charge the cybersecurity levy on Nigerians for online transactions two weeks from now.

The CBN, however, left out 16 listed banking transactions from its new cybersecurity levy.

Clarifying the information, the CBN said the levy would be separately “reflected in the customer’s account” as “Cybersecurity Levy” and “applied at the point of electronic transfer origination, then deducted and remitted by the financial institution.”

Reacting to the Central bank of Nigeria (CBN) directives to commercial banks and other financial institutions to start charging cybersecurity levy, SERAP threatened to sue the FG if the “grossly unlawful” directive by the CBN is not reversed.

The statement reads:

“The Tinubu administration must immediately withdraw the grossly unlawful CBN directive to implement section 44 of the Cybercrime Act 2024, which imposes a 0.5% ‘cybersecurity levy’ on Nigerians. We’ll see in court if the directive is not withdrawn within 48 hours.”
