CBN GOvernor, Mr Godwin Emefele                                    Pulseng.
A statement which was released on CBN website today,  where the Central Bank Of Nigeria was asking Nigerians who have interest in buying  Forex for BTA, PTA, medical and school fees but are being denied by any bank, to ensure they call this number 07002255226 to report such a bank. 
Following the statement, some Bank customers have complained that since the Central bank had issued a directive that all banks should sell Forex at N360/$1 to its customers, most of this banks have been denying customers of buying Forex  with an excuse of inadequate Foreign Exchange. Read the Statement issued by CBN.

Information reaching the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) reveals that some customers seeking to buy Forex for BTA, PTA, medical and school fees are being frustrated by some banks with the false claim that the CBN is not allocating enough Forex to them for BTA, PTA, Tuition and Medical fees. This claim is totally untrue. All banks have more than enough stock of Forex in their possession for the purpose of meeting genuine customers’ demand for BTA, PTA, tuition and medical fees. 
Indeed, on a weekly basis, the CBN has been selling at least $80m to banks for onward sale to their customers for these invisible items. Members of the public seeking to buy Forex for the above-mentioned purposes are, therefore, advised to go to their banks and obtain their Forex
Any customer who is not attended to within 24 hours for BTA/PTA or 48 hours for tuition and medical fees should call 07002255226 or send an email to, with the name and branch of the non-cooperating bank. Furthermore, no customer should accept to buy Forex from any bank at more than the CURRENTLY prescribed rate of N360/$1.
