CBN pledges support for health sector to tackle covid-19

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has said that the apex bank is committed to fully intervene in the health sector following the outbreak of Coronavirus in Nigeria.

The apex bank made this known yesterday at a consultative round table with stakeholders in Abuja.

Emefiele explained that the CBN had decided to support the government by helping to develop specialist hospitals across the country.

He said the bank’s intervention would be in the areas of diagnosis and surgery, pointing out that this would reduce medical tourism.
