CBN decries rising naira abuse
|CBN decries rising naira abuse by lasbrey20: 12:39 am On July 29, 2018|
The Central Bank of Nigeria has decried the growing abuse of the naira through squeezing, selling, spraying and marching on foot while dancing at public functions as well as hoarding by some citizens.
The CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, warned that henceforth culprits caught in any of the acts would be liable to six-month imprisonment or a fine of N50,000 or both, in accordance with the CBN Act of 2007.
Insisting that the nation’s currency should be accorded equal respect and dignity as its national flag, the apex bank governor explained that the nation was spending more than N100 to mint a N100 note.
Emefiele gave the clarification at a two-day sensitisation/enlightenment workshop themed, ‘Promoting Financial Stability and Economic Development’, organised for industrialists, manufacturers, hair dressers, bakers, members of the All Farmers Association of Nigeria, tailors and mechanics, among others, in Owerri on Friday.
Represented by the Acting Director of Communication of the bank, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, the governor said that the nationwide sensitisation was in the second phase and had already taken place in 34 states of the federation.
