“It will be income for the CBN as well as income for Nigeria,” he said.
NAN reports that the Governor, Central Bank of the Gambia, Buah Saidy, had made the currency printing proposal when he led a delegation to the CBN on June 15.
Saidy said that his country was running low on currency and wants to learn how to manage their currency need by leveraging Nigeria’s wealth of experience.
He said that Gambia currently had an order for two years currency minting deal abroad but is considering also minting from Nigeria.
The CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, said that Nigeria had a lot of capacity in currency printing having been minting since the 1960s.
He assured Saidy that the CBN would assist in printing the dalasi for Gambia, adding that “we can be extremely competitive in terms of cost.(NAN)
