The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has said only a vast majority of Nigerian financially literate population can participate and take up opportunities in the formal financial system and contribute to financial stability.
To realise the goal, Emefiele said financial education will continue to be of great importance to the bank until financial services become affordable to the unbanked.
The governor was represented yesterday by CBN’s Director, Human Resources, Mr Edward Lamtek at the Financial Literacy Summit to commemorate the 2017 Global Money Week, with the theme “Learn, Save, Earn’’.
Emefiele said financial inclusion ensures that, irrespective of income level, all individuals, households and businesses have access to appropriate and affordable financial services products.
Students selected from across private and public schools in Abuja attended the summit .
