The Nigerian National Domestic Card Scheme, Afrigo, has been launched by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, launched the card virtually this morning, saying that transaction fees on all cards would now be paid in naira, except for international transactions.
According to him, Afrigo would be less expensive and a source of national pride, with the potential to increase financial inclusion.
Similarly, the Apex Bank has stated that it is keeping a close eye on the inflationary pressures in the economy.
Speaking at the 2023 Vanguard National Economic Discourse held in Lagos yesterday, CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, acknowledged the concerns raised by participants at the event over the effects of the monetary policy stance of the apex bank’s inflation-targeting policy on the economy.
Represented by Mr Bariboloka Koyor, Lagos Branch Controller of CBN, Emefiele stated: “We are keeping our eyes on the indices as they are going and it is our responsibility to bring in the necessary controls and the regulations that we believe will be able to address all the issues.
“Inflation like we know at the moment is a little bit on the high side but we have taken policies and stance to moderate it.
