The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) are to invest a fresh N50 billion in the Nigerian Commodity Exchange (NCX), Abuja.

The Governor of the CBN, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, disclosed this , this afternoon, at the Inaugural Meeting of the Steering Committee, set up to reposition the exchange.

He said that the investment would be made through the Infrastructure Corporation (Infraco) in a push to make the exchange functional and halt the arbitrage of middlemen, under whom Nigerian farmers have suffered for decades.
