Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN has joined the rest of the world to commemorate the 11th edition of the Global Money Week, with the theme: “Plan Your Money, Plant Your Future.’’
The line-up of events by the bank commenced on Monday, March 20, 2023, with a walk from the old parade ground to the bank’s headquarters in Abuja.
Students from various government secondary schools in Abuja were part of the walk, which ended with a tour of the bank’s Currency Museum, a lecture on financial literacy and a quiz on savings culture.
The head, Consumer Education Division of the Consumer Protection Department, Chinyere Jane Nwobilor said: “Without financial literacy, children will not be able to imbibe financial discipline.
“We are trying to catch them young to be able to save, earn and invest.”
The CBN, which is the coordinator of all stakeholders in this year’s celebration also hinted at ensuring continuity by integrating financial literacy campaigns in the educational curriculum very soon.
“The theme for this years’ event is ‘plan your money and plant your future’. You plan through savings, budgeting, investment as well as learning to separate needs from want,” Nwobilor added.
