CBN shares how to report PoS operators charging above N200
The Central Bank of Nigeria has released emergency telephone numbers where Nigerians could report Point of Sales agents selling new naira notes or charging above N200 for withdrawal of amounts up to N10,000.
The Director, CBN Governor’s Department, Mr Joseph Omayuku, made this known during a briefing with journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital on Tuesday.
While warning syndicates engaging in illegal practices to desist forthwith, Omayuku advised members of the public to report erring PoS agents by reaching out to the CBN contact centre on 07002255226; Telephone Ext: 711025 – 7; firstname.lastname@example.org and its social media handles.
The scarcity of the new naira notes has been biting Nigerians so hard, with many rejecting the old notes as legal tender, while some state governors have resolved to sue the Federal Government for the challenges experienced in their respective states.
