By Sadiq Umar – The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has called on the public to report any bank that refuses to grant their request for foreign exchange for BTA/PTA and pilgrimage within 24 hours.

CBN, in a statement by its acting Director, Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor, directed customers to approach their banks with their legitimate demands, saying it has supplied enough dollars to the Banks.

“The Central Bank of Nigeria 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,” it added.
