CBN bankers committee orders Access Bank, others to Suspend mass sack

CBN suspends cheque clearing nationwide – With effect from today, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has suspended the clearing of all cheque instruments in the Nigerian clearing system.

A circular signed and sent out to all Deposit Money Banks and the Nigeria Internal Settlement  System (NIBSS) by the CBN on Monday stated that “no fresh cheque instrument will be allowed to pass through clearing system on March 31,  2020.”

“Only returned cheques would be treated on the said date.”

The circular with reference identity REF: BKS/DIR/GEN/CIR/07/002 signed by Sam C Okojere, Director Banking Services Department attributed the decision to “recent developments and in furtherance to the Bank’s efforts to ensure hitch free clearing and settlement activities.”

The recent developments he referred to was President Buhari’s nation wide broadcast on Sunday where he announced a lockdown in Lagos, Ogun states and Federal Capital Territory for two weeks in the interim starting from 11pm of March 30th, 2020 as a means of combating the spread of the Corona virus and to ensure the safety of all Nigerians.

However, the circular noted that “settlement activities for electronic instruments will continue to hold during this period of suspension.”

CBN limits withdrawal of deposits in domiciliary accounts

In another development, the Central Bank of Nigeria has released the list of financial institutions that have been granted exemption to be seen outside during two weeks lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and the FCT.

They are staff of: the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN); Deposit Money Banks (DMBs); the Nigeria Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS) Plc; Switching companies; Mobile money operators and Payment solution service providers.

Consequently, relevant security agencies have been requested to grant passage to critical staff of these institutions to enable essential and strategic financial transactions to go undisrupted during the period of the lockdown.

According to the CBN, “in view of the ongoing restrictions and in order to check further spread of the corona virus disease, the CBN hereby urges the general public to limit their use of cash and avail themselves of the use of alternative payment channels such as mobile banking, Internet banking, Mobile money, Point of Sale, and USSD.

It assured the public that “financial institutions will remain operational during this period and therefore should guard against panic withdrawals from their banks.
