Last minute syndrome
A typical example of this is the June 30th 2015 deadline to enrol for the Bank Verification Number. Many Nigerians had over two months to visit one of their bank branches to do this registration.

The Central Bank of Nigerian was benevolent enough to extend the time for the registration. This same attitude was displayed during the registration and collection for the permanent voter’s card.
