Two deputy governors of the Central Bank of Nigeria will be questioned by the Senate on Friday over the cash withdrawal limit policy announced by the apex bank on Tuesday.
The new policy which limits cash withdrawals for individuals to N100,000 a week and organisations to N500,000 is still a major topic of conversation days after it was unveiled.
Clarifications on the new directive will be sought by the red chamber concerning the policy which takes effect from January 9, 2023.
