SEIFAC Postpones Project Account Opening

This is to bring to the notice of our esteemed members that the SEIFAC Project Account Opening which was scheduled to commence from 1st to 28th February 2021 has been postponed due to government’s restriction on gathering of persons as a result of the prevalence of COVID-19. In like manner, the registration closure date which was scheduled for 11:59pm 31 January 2021 has been postponed to 11:59pm 10th February 2021.

The SEIFAC Participating Financial Institution (PFI) as required by CBN in conjunction with SEIFAC are mindful of our members’ safety and as such the PFI and SEIFAC are working hard in making sure that we adapt the best methodology that will not endanger the lives of our members, therefore, curtailing the gathering of our Member-Farmers in our participating Bank branches across the country for Project Account opening is of the utmost importance to us all.

We therefore call on all our members across the country to remain calm while the process tarries and SEIFAC shall come up with a communique in due course which will be published on our website when we adapt the best possible and cost effective method with the tentative date for commencement of Project Account Opening . We deeply regret the inconveniences this might cause you our amiable members.
