CBN Re-admits UBA into FOREX Market


The Central Bank of Nigeria has re-admitted the United Bank of Nigeria into the FOREX market after the apex bank barred UBA and eight other banks from the market after it discovered that they withheld NNPC/NLNG’s $2.3 billion from the Single Treasury Account.

UBA had swiftly claimed that it had remitted all NNPC/NLNG dollar deposit with it into the TSA.
