The bank will also suspend the issuance of new licences to money changers across the country with immediate effect, Governor Godwin Emefiele said in a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon.

The announcement comes as the bank intensifies efforts to mitigate further decline of the country’s economy and the national currency.

Bureau de change operators have long been a major black market, providing exchange rate support to those unable to formally access foreign currencies directly from the CBN.
