The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Friday directed all banks including microfinance banks, primary mortgage institutions that have agents, Mobile Money Operators (MMOs) and licensed Super Agents to render daily returns through the Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS), effective July 10.

The CBN has been working with various stakeholders to conduct a review and refresh of the strategy.

The exercise focused on evaluating progress, identifying gaps and developing a refreshed strategy document which serves as a roadmap for implementation till the terminal year 2020.

In 2010, Nigeria made a commitment to reduce the adult financial exclusion rate in the country from 46.3 percent to 20 percent by the year 2020. In order to attain this target, the National Financial Inclusion Strategy ( NFIS) was launched on October 23, 2012.
