The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Friday announced revocation of the operational licenses of 4,173 Bureau De Change (BDC) operators in the country.

This is contained in a statement issued by Sidi Ali, Hakama, Acting Director, Corporate Communications, CBN.

The statement said the CBN took the action in the exercise of the powers conferred on it under the Bank and Other Financial Institutions Act (BOFIA) 2020, Act No. 5, and the Revised Operational Guidelines for Bureaux De Change 2015 (the Guidelines).

The apex bank said the affected institutions failed to observe at least one of the following regulatory provisions: Payment of all necessary fees, including license renewal, within the stipulated period in line with the guidelines; rendition of returns in line with the guidelines and compliance with guidelines, directives and circulars of the CBN, particularly Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) and Counter-Proliferation Financing (CPF) regulations.

“The CBN is revising the regulatory and supervisory guidelines for Bureau de Change operations in Nigeria. Compliance with the new requirements will be mandatory for all stakeholders in the sector when the revised guidelines become effective.

“Members of the public are hereby advised to take note and be guided accordingly,” the apex bank said.
