CBN has unveiled a programme for the first anniversary of the launch of E-Naira.

A calendar of events has been released by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to mark the first anniversary of the introduction of the “E-Naira,” Africa’s first central bank digital currency (CBDC). The E-Naira was publicly introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari on October 25, 2021. Osita Nwanisobi, the director of corporate communications, said in a statement that the introduction of the E-Naira has established Nigeria as one of the forerunners in the deployment of a CBDC into live production.

The IMF, World Bank, other Central Banks, and the CBDC community, according to the statement, had continued to show interest in this. The CBN will hold a one-day workshop titled “Leveraging Innovation for Inclusive Growth and Development: The E-Naira Advantage” scheduled to take place on October 25, 2022, at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island in Lagos. As part of the events planned to mark the first anniversary of the E-Naira, according to the statement. The workshop’s goals include a one-year evaluation of the E-Naira implementation process, public involvement to encourage future E-Naira adoption, and facilitation of a global policy conversation on CBDC to encourage peer learning and benchmarking.

Upcoming event will be hosted by the Governor, Godwin Emefiele.

Ministers of Communication and the Digital Economy, as well as the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, will speak at the event, which will be hosted by the Governor, Godwin Emefiele. The heads of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System Plc (NIBSS), Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), members of the Bankers’ Committee, academics, financial services and telecommunications regulators, businesspeople, agents, cooperative groups, technical experts, and representatives from the entertainment industry are among the other prominent attendees at the event.

This digital money will make transactions simple, but it differs from existing digital currencies in that it will be issued by the CBN, a governmental institution. A financial system with minimal costs and assurance of greater efficiency might be made simple to access through the use of digital naira. Without having a bank account, the low-cost payment method enables transactions between people and customers to businesses via Smartphones. The advantages of the digital naira can guarantee that individuals would have new perspectives on how to use financial services.
