The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has taken its financial literacy and inclusion initiatives to children in primary schools and orphanages across the country.

As part of the 2023 Children’s Day commemoration, the apex bank feasted 700 children from five Local Education Authority (LEA) primary schools and five orphanage homes in Abuja not just to celebrate Children’s Day but to educate them on how to develop savings culture and financial management.

Hauwa Aji Ishaku, Deputy Director Governor’s Department of the CBN said “the CBN is a financial institution that has a corporate social responsibility office that takes care of the needy in the society so today being children’s day, we need to carry them along, we want to make them happy and have some kind of belonging in the society.

“We are also going to use this as part of our financial literacy drive, talk to them about financial inclusion and how they can also help themselves as they are growing and how they can manage their finances anytime they come across finances that are allocated to them”.
