The CBN, she said, employed Deloitte Consulting, an independent auditing firm, to meticulously assess the transactions, ensuring that only legitimate claims were honoured.

The CBN’s commitment to tackling the FX backlog appears to be paying off.

External reserves have seen a significant rise, reaching $34.11 billion as of March 7, 2024, the highest level in eight months
