Refusal to sell BTA/PTA Forex: CBN asks customers to report Banks
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has enjoined customers to report any bank that refuses to sell forex to them within 24 hours of making such requests.
According to Acting Director of Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor, “CBN has 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. Isaac Okorafor, Ag. Director, Corporate Communications.”
