CBN suspends 19 banks from forex sale to to BDCs

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has suspended all the banks, with exception of First Bank, from selling dollars proceeds of international money transfer services (IMTS) to Bureaux De Change (BDCs). 




Two months ago, the CBN had directed banks to sell proceeds of their international money transfer services to BDCs. This was in a bid to address the steady and sharp depreciation of the naira in the parallel market. 

Investigation however revealed that most of the banks were not complying with this directive, preferring to do brisk business with the proceeds.

This generated several complains from the BDCs, with the Association of Bureaux De change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON) calling for a review of the policy measure. 

According to Vanguard, the CBN decided to sanction the banks following investigation which revealed most of the were either not complying or were circumventing the directive.

What's wrong with these banks sef? Let them come and explain why they aren't complying. The painful part is that gtb sent me an email to say that my monthly limit is now $250. Abeg, what kind of joke is that? I don't even want to answer that gtb cos they are a bone in my throat!!

Emeifelemomics...He should go and learn from the likes of Soludo, Sanusi et all. We are still waiting for FDIs and FPIs despite rates being above 18% for the 1year instrument. They just wake up and nx dish out policies not minding the consequence,this newa might weaken naira against ths dollar when market opens today.


God help Nigeria.

Pls wat did Buhari went to China to do? Everything has turned upside down since his trip. To get visa now is a struggle. The compulsory 1 year u get after the 6 months visa is now a mirage. Doing ATM in China is out of it cos banks now charge more than 80 naira while the market rate is 65 naira per Rmb. It's really frustrating. I am not a politician. Have never called buhari out in all my suffering but this one is just too much. Do we all have to shop in cannan market like poshrawyalty now before we can make profit? God forbid.
