The Central Bank of Nigeria in a circular, made a decision to relocate its department of banking supervision to Lagos with the aim of decongesting its head office while emphasizing the importance of adhering to safety standards and improving office space efficiency.
The apex bank’s decision to relocate is said to be driven by concerns about safety, increased health and accident risks, and the need for compliance with building regulations.
