Nigerian comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, popularly known as Seyi Law, has expressed frustration over the recent introduction of a 0.5 per cent cybersecurity levy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

In response to the CBN’s directive instructing banks to impose a cybersecurity levy on transactions, Seyi Law described the new policy as “unacceptable.” He called on the apex bank to reconsider the levy, emphasizing the burden it places on Nigerians.

Taking to his social media handle, Seyi Law voiced his concerns, highlighting the confusion surrounding the exact percentage of the levy and its potential impact on banking transactions. He urged government agencies to communicate policies clearly to avoid misinformation and public dissatisfaction.
