How we  Commences Dollar Sales For SMEs, School Fees -CBN

 

By Divine Nwaoguji-Nweke

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has resumed provision of foreign exchange to all commercial banks for onward sales to parents wishing to pay schools fees and SMEs wishing to make essential imports needed to revamp economic activities across the country.

In particular, the CBN is resuming the provision of over US$100 million per week for both categories.

The CBN has also made complete arrangements to resume foreign exchange sales to the BDC segment of the market for business travels, personal travels, and other designated retail uses, as soon as international flights resume.

The Bank reiterated that it is adequately meeting the needs of all legitimate users, and our continued capacity to do so should not be in doubt and that there is no need for panic by any end-user that could necessitate recourse to illegitimate sources and spike in foreign exchange rates.

The Bank has ramped up its surveillance of the foreign exchange markets for speculators, smugglers and other illegal users, and will take decisive actions against anyone/institutions involved in such nefarious activities.
