The number of delisted loan apps rose from nine to 37, according to the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC’s new report.
This was just as the number of fully approved loan apps also grew to 164 from 154 as of the last updates obtained from its website on Monday.
In the same vein, the number of loan apps with conditional approval declined to 38 from 40, and the number of apps on the commission’s watchlist grew to 56 from 20.
This followed a sustained shakeup of the digital money lending space by the FCCPC, after harassment of Nigerians by the lenders.
