The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has urged bank customers denied foreign exchange to purchase BTA/PTA and forex for pilgrimage to report such banks to it.
The apex bank made the appeal on Wednesday via a statement signed by the Ag. Director, Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor.
CBN in the statement said it had “reliably gathered that some banks are turning back customers that come to purchase BTA/PTA and forex for pilgrimage.”
“We hereby appeal to bank customers to go straight to their banks to buy forex as the CBN has supplied enough dollars to the banks to meet needs in the invisibles segment. Customers are hereby enjoined to report any bank that refuses to attend to their legitimate demands within 24 hours. Please, call 07002255226,” Okorafor said.
