The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has insisted that it will not go back on implementation of the cashless policy.
The Central Bank of Nigeria on Friday said it would continue to implement the cashless policy in line with its mandate to ensure an efficient payment system, Punch has reported.
The CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, said this while briefing journalists shortly after the Monetary Policy Committee meeting.
