A statement signed by the apex bank’s head, corporate communications department, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, indicated that the decision was taken to further mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the economy.

Okorafor maintained that as “ a responsible public institution and regulator, we have triggered our business continuity plans to ensure that the Bank’s operations remain largely undisrupted at this present time when social distancing has become key to checking further spread of the virus.

“We have also directed Deposit money banks (DMBs) and other financial institutions to do the same. The welfare and safety of our staff and their families, and indeed all Nigerians, remain a top priority to us.”
