eNaira removed from Google Play Store 48 hours after launch

The recently unveiled eNaira Wallet application has been removed from Google Play Store barely 48 hours after it was launched by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

It is however available on the Apple app store with 2.6 over 5 ratings.

The digital currency has two applications, which are eNaira speed wallet and eNaira merchant wallet.

On Monday, the two apps were rolled out on the Google play store and the Apple store.

At the launch on Monday, CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, boasted that 500 million eNaira ($1.21 million) has already been minted.

Meanwhile, a notice on the eNaira website explained how the currency and the wallet would work.

It read: “Get Ready With Your Accurate BVN Data For Your Hitch-Free Enrolment.

“To sign-up on the eNaira speed wallet, you would be required to input the following details exactly as captured during your BVN enrollment.

“First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, State of Origin, and Email. 

“Your banks are waiting to assist you in validating and updating your BVN details to ensure seamless enrolment to the eNaira platform.”

However, negative reactions have trailed the launch of the app as many users complained of several issues, ranging from the inability to link their Bank Verification number, to getting a verification email.

Many Nigerians expressed their displeasure in the review section.

A user, Oscar Alexander, gave it one star rating, saying, “I tried registering the first time. Told me there was no email attached to my BVN. I tried my other bank account. It told me an invalid account number. Lol. Now it says too many attempts with the same BVN. What a joke!”
