The Spokesperson reiterated that the CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has urged Nigerians to play their role by adjusting their consumption patterns, looking inwards, and finding innovative solutions to the country’s challenges.

He added that recent initiatives undertaken by the CBN Bank such as the RT200 FX Programme and the Naira4Dollar rebate scheme had helped to increase foreign exchange inflow to the country.”
