No Going Back On The New Cashless Policy — CBN

Central bank of Nigeria

Nigeria’s apex bank on Friday said it would go forward to implement the cashless policy in line with its mandate to ensure an efficient payment system.

The Central bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, said this while briefing journalists shortly after the Monetary Policy Committee meeting.

He said that contrary to claims in some quarters that many Nigerians would suffer the negative impact of the policy, only about five to ten per of bank customers would be affected.

He said if the Nigerian economy is to compete effectively with those of developed countries, then a payment system that encourages the use of other non-cash channel was desirable.
