Palmpay, a leading mobile payment platform, has resumed registration for new customers and merchants on its app, following the approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

This development comes a week after OPay, another prominent fintech company, announced its resumption of new customer onboarding, also after receiving CBN’s greenlight.
