The decision by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to allow international money transfers to be paid in foreign currency, is aimed at providing increased liquidity in the foreign exchange market. The bank explained that the new regulation is part of its efforts to liberalize, simplify and improve the receipt and administration of diaspora remittances into Nigeria.

Gbenga Okejimi, Country Manager, Nigeria and Ghana, at WorldRemit, said: 

“We are very happy to announce that customers can continue to send money to Nigeria seamlessly using WorldRemit. We have added a new option to send USD for cash pick up to approximately 3,500  cash payment points around the country.
