The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has postponed the official launch of its digital currency, E-naira.
The launch was earlier scheduled for October 1st.
According to the CBN spokesperson, Mr Osita Nwanisobi, the decision to postpone the unveiling of the E-naira, was made to avoid any distractions from the country’s 61st Independence Day celebration.
The CBN assured Nigerians that the bank and other partners are working to ensure a seamless process for the benefit of all.
Meanwhile, no new date has been announced for the launch.
