CBN To INEC: We’ll Make Cash Available For You
AHEAD of the February 25th general elections in Nigeria, the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN has promised to provide money for the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, to enable them to carry out the exercise.
The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele made this known in a chat with the INEC Chairman, on Tuesday.
Emefiele described the INEC project as the topmost or urgent National assignment while stressing that the CBN would not allow itself either to be used or seen as an agent that frustrated a positive outcome of that election.
His words: “Because we regard the INEC project as the topmost or an urgent National assignment, it cannot fail and the CBN would not allow itself either to be used or seen as an agent that frustrated a positive outcome of that election.
“We are committed to supporting INEC in the area of electronic means of payment and cash to pay some service providers during the #NigeriaDecides2023 election.”
