CBN stops banks' plans to sack any staff due to the negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the banking industry in Nigeria.

Central Bank of Nigeria has stopped banks' plans to sack any staff due to the negative impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the banking industry in Nigeria. 

During a special meeting of the Bankers' committee held on Saturday, May 2, 2020, the decision to retrench bank staff was reviewed and opposed. 


The statement was publicly made known by the Spokesman of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Isaac Okorafor. 
The statement reads: "A special meeting of the Bankers' committee was convened on May 2, 2020, to further review the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Nigerian banking industry. The committee particularly deliberated on the issue of the operating costs of banks in view of the disruptions emanating from the global economic difficulties and decided as follows:
1. In order to help minimize and mitigate the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on families and livelihoods, no bank in Nigeria shall retrench or lay off any staff of any cadre(including full-time and part-time). 
2. To give effect to the above measure, the express approval of the Central Bank of Nigeria shall be required in event that it becomes absolutely necessary to lay-off any such staff. 
The Central Bank of Nigeria solicits the support of all in our collective effort to weather through the economic challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic"
