The Zamfara state government on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, disbursed N70 million to empower 300 Point-of-Sale, PoS, operators to fast-track implementation of the cashless policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
The gesture was part of Governor Bello Matawalle’s empowerment and wealth creation programme which will boost the CBN cashless policy alongside making PoS beneficiaries self-reliant.
