The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has started a campaign to educate school children about money, saving, creating livelihoods and becoming an entrepreneur.
The CBN’s Deputy Governor, Financial System Stability (FSS), Mrs. Aisha Ahmad led some CBN Directors to visit some schools within Abuja as part of activities to mobilise secondary school children to embrace money saving culture as well as mark the Global Money week.
The schools visited were the Government Secondary School, Wuse Zone 3 and the Staff Community Secondary School, Asokoro.
Ahmad urged the children to learn to manage their money wisely, save and invest for their future.
The CBN Deputy Governor also spoke to the students on the benefits of budgeting, “which gives one control over finances, help to build assets and create a healthy financial situation.”
She also took the opportunity to educate the children on the difference between good and bad debt.
