The Nation: To combat the forex crisis, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has taken a tough stance on the operations of the Bureaux De Change (BDCs) operations.

Daily Trust: Twenty seven states are yet to have vehicle conversion centres as the federal government moves to actualise the use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to mitigate the effects of fuel subsidy removal.
