CBN set to bar exporters with unrepatriated export proceeds: What you should know

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) recently released a memo stating that the institution will be barring exporters who fail to repatriate export proceeds from accessing banking services effective from 31st of January 2021.

The CBN has a policy that states that exporters are to repatriate exports within 90 days for oil and gas exports and 180 days for non-oil exports. This move by the CBN is aimed at controlling access to foreign exchange through the black market. The COVID-19 Pandemic led to a drastic global decline in crude oil prices which led to the scarcity of foreign exchange in Nigeria. Reports from analysts have stated that the memo was issued as part of a monetary control mechanism by the policymakers to maintain relative stability in the exchange rate.
