The apex bank boss who was represented by the Ibadan Branch Controller of CBN, Mrs. Olufolake Ogundero, further said loans valued at N83.9bn were disbursed to pharmaceutical companies and healthcare practitioners to support them during the period.

He said, “We disbursed over N83.9bn in loans to pharmaceutical companies and healthcare practitioners, which is supporting 26 pharmaceutical and 56 medical projects across the country.

“We were also able to mobilize key stakeholders in the Nigerian economy through the CACOVID alliance, which led to the provision of over N25bn in relief materials to affected households, and the set-up of 39 isolation centers across the country.

“These measures helped to expand and strengthen the existing capacity of our healthcare institutions to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Emefiele also said CBN is working with the Bankers Committee put in place to support the growth of the creative industry in Nigeria.
