The Central Bank of Nigeria’s e-Naira speed wallet mobile application is now back on Google Playstore few hours after it was reportedly taken down by it’s administrators.
The eNaira application was reported to have been down yesterday evening just 48 hours after the digital currency was launched on Monday.
However, a Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) source said the application was upgraded due to the huge traffic it has attracted. Google, the source said, brought down the old eNaira app before the CBN could upload the new one.
”The CBN assured that the new app will be up and running very soon on Google Playstore. What happened was a technical glitch. The eNaira app is still running on iOS,” the source said.
However, as at on Thursday, 28th October, afternoon, the application which has over a 100 thousand downloads was up on Google playstore for installation and use. It has also gotten a lot of negative reviews as users say they have been unable to upload vital documents and complete registrations on it.
eNaira is a digital currency issued by the CBN. It’s a digital form of the naira that is housed in a secured wallet called the eNaira wallet.
