The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has encouraged the people of the South-East to clasp its intervention programmes to enable them grow their businesses.
Osita Nwanisiobi,the Ag Director, Corporate Communications Department, who spoke
at the opening ceremony of the CBN Fair in Enugu, lamented the low participants of South East Consumers on its intervention programmes.
According him, the apex bank was determined to continue to sensitize the public on all its policies and intervention programmes. Nwanisiobi encouraged the citizens of the South East region to leverage on CBN intervention programmes.
He added that the apex bank was worried about the low impact of its intervention programmes in South East, which he said necessitated the fair is to sensitize the general public on its intervention and how they can leverage it because “we notice there is a low participation in embracing the intervention in the South-East”. “We are coming out so aggressively to talk to them because these interventions are real and people have to be able to grow their businesses through these interventions as well as those in agriculture who have used it also to grow their commodities. “These interventions are there for people to take advantage of what Central Bank provides for them as we have about 37 interventions in CBN that people can leverage to grow their businesses.
“These interventions are unique on their own and their requirements are different. “All our interventions are real and working perfectly as the CBN Governor is passionate about these interventions so you can come over and take advantage of these intervention programmes without knowing anybody,” Nwanisiobi explained.
He tasked all stakeholders to join the apex bank in sensitizing the people of South East on the need for them to come to CBN and take advantage of the intervention programmes
