  1. I have realized that there is no pin for single business yet a PIN Certificate is a requirement for AGPO registration. Does this mean that a single business owner cannot be registered? If not, what is the way around this? Kindly help.

  2. Should Agpo certificates holders be subjected to audited accounts…or financials? Please respond asap

  3. I applied for the agpo certificate 2 months ago and my application status is still pending ,please advise for how long shall i wait, or what is the way forward.
