#Breaking: Central Bank Expels At least 14 Banks From Wholesale Forex Window Over Infractions

BEVERLY HILLS, May 2, (THEWILL) – The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has banned over a dozen commercial banks in Nigeria from the highly lucrative Wholesale FX window for deliberately frustrating efforts by small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) to access foreign exchange from the new forex window created by the regulator on April 11, 2017.

On the list of the suspended banks according to multiple authoritative sources with knowledge of the development are some of the biggest banks in land – GTB, Citi Bank, FCMB, Ecobank, Standard Chartered Bank and Union Bank amongst others.

THEWILL gathered that the ban is effective immediately.

The sources told THEWILL that only eight (8) banks were not affected by the ban, which was approved by Governor Godwin Emefiele on Tuesday. The banks are Access Bank, Zenith Bank, Fidelity Bank, Diamond Bank, Sterling Bank, Unity Bank, Jaiz Bank and Heritage Bank.

The sources said the CBN took the drastic decision based on field reports, which revealed that only the eight banks spared had sold forex to the SMEs segment since the inception of the new window. One source said the apex bank frowned at the action of the banks that declined to sell forex to SMEs to enable them import their materials despite availability of forex from the CBN Wholesale Intervention window.

“Of the US$400 million the CBN has allocated to commercial banks in this SME Window, reliable reports indicate that commercial banks have only sold less than 10 percent to small-scale users and traders, a situation that has forced these users to remain in the black market,” one source said, warning that the CBN will not condone any actions from banks or groups that could undermine the stability of the forex market.

    The program itself is rather easy to follow.
    All the user needs to do is commit to daily listening sessions for the audio included.
    However, many people may be hesitant because they may find it
    difficult to get into a state of meditation, however the BioEnergy Code doesn’t require a
    certain mindset.

    Alternatively, you could go to a homebrewers forum and ask if anyone local is growing. If so, you could just take a cutting of their roots and stick them in your yard.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    this take a lot of work? I’ve absolutely no understanding of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I simply
    had to ask. Appreciate it!
