The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and other relevant authorities have been called upon to liaise with network providers for improved network services to encourage Nigerians on the newly introduced seeming cashless policy in the Country.
A revered Monarch, Ohiegba of Mozum in Bassa Local Government Area of Kogi State, Alhaji Khalid Bukar (II), made the call in an interview while reacting to the Cash crunch experienced Nationwide.
Alhaji Khalid said the lack of cash in Banks and other financial institutions, coupled with bad network, was causing untold hardship to the people especially those at the rural areas who have no bank accounts, pointing out that most transactions were only successful at night while businesses transactions takes place during the day.
The Ohiegba of Mozu called on relevant stakeholders to build more Banks to accommodate their teeming customers in the State and urged the people to remain calm and prayerful, saying that the hardship will be temporal.
