CBN issues fresh promise to commercial banks.

Kogi CBN Branch Controller, Ahmed Sule, made the vow while speaking with NAN in his office in Lokoja.

According to Sule, the scarcity of the new Naira might have resulted in some commercial banks not opening for customers on Wednesday and Thursday.

He said, โ€œI wish to announce to you that weโ€™re expecting our stock of the New Naira notes very soon for distribution to the commercial banks operating here in Kogi.

โ€œWeโ€™re aware of the difficult times our fellow citizens are in right now, and we expect the [commercial] banks to help ameliorate the peopleโ€™s sufferings by dispensing as we so directed them.

โ€œWeโ€™ll soon invite them [commercial banks] to come for their allocations as weโ€™re expecting it today, being Thursday.
