Between Former President, Goodluck Jonathan And President Buhari, Who Introduced BVN

This topic is a very controversial, debated among Nigerians as which administration between Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammad Buhari created a policy of BVN, some are of the opinion that it was during former President Goodluck Jonathan, while some argue that it is was during the current administration of President Muhammad Buhari first term tenure that created the policy of BVN.

We all know that the BVN was initiated to lower the rate of financial crime or theft in the country which simply means bank verification number, the number is eleven 11 in number, the BVN captures every details of an account holder. Nowadays, to open new account number in commercial bank you must provide your BVN before opening account.

Based on what I know, the BVN was formulated and created by Goodluck Jonathan but it could not be introduce as fully implemented because election were very near precisely ending of 2014, so which ever party won the election then would have eventually implemented because it was seen as a necessary banking reform policy which must be implemented.

But majority of people usually credited the policy to Muhammad Buhari.

Now which of the administration introduced the policy BVN? Is it Goodluck Jonathan or Muhammad Buhari.
