The Governor of the apex bank, Mr Godwin Emefiele, made this known during a Bankers Committee meeting in Abuja on Thursday.

What this means is that the CBN has extended the 5% interest rate on its various Loan Intervention Programmes to 1st March 2023.

Recall that the apex bank had in 2021 extended the 5% interest rate on various Intervention Loan Facilities such as COVID-19 Targeted Credit Facility Loan, AGSMEIS Loan, Anchor Borrowers Programme Loan and the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund Loan Scheme till 1st March 2022, after which it would revert to 9% across the duration of the loan.

“Although interest rates on our various intervention facilities are expected to revert to 9% effective March 1, 2022, we are announcing that the rates will remain at 5% for another year, Emefiele recently stated.

“In effect, the concessionary interest rate of 5% on our intervention loan facilities will now be extended until March 1, 2023,” he added.

Emefiele noted that the apex bank will be reviewing the intervention programmes in order to ensure they continue to achieve the desired goals, adding that this is necessary due to the promising trajectory the bank has established in economic growth and job creation.
