'Profit' made from illegal and incessant deductions from customers accounts...
'Profit made from refusal to reverse debits from failed transactions...
This is applicable to all banks in Nigeria and CBN is benefiting from the corruption and poor security in mobile and Internet banking.

The day i will never forget in life was the day my Dad was in the sitting room, I was outside. He called me to help him bring his shoes from his room. I brought the shoe and asked him where I should keep it. Dad said I should keep it on his head. Brothers and sisters, as an obedient child, I kept the shoes on his head. The only thing I remember after placing the shoes on his head is that the earth became void and without form. Everywhere was dark and it felt like Genesis chapter 1:1&2 all over again.
