CBN stated in a strong worded statement that any bank failing to publish its financial statement within four months of their financial year is at risk of facing heavy sanctions as well as the sacking of its executives.
Nigeria also continues to face a tough economic climate with the Naira depreciating further to N281.5 to the dollar which was due to a resurgence of demand for dollars.
News24 Nigeria reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has criticised CBN's flexible exchange policy saying that it is yet to reap rewards for Nigerians.
