PUNCH reports that Emefiele said this while delivering a keynote address at the second edition of the RT-200 Bi-annual Export Summit on Tuesday in Lagos.
Emefiele said, “Of this amount, only $1.97 billion qualified for the rebate programme, while only $1.56 billion was sold at the Investors and Exporters (I & E) window or for own use”.
Emefiele said that the apex bank paid out about N81 billion in rebates to Nigerian exporters during the period.
“This is a testament to the resolve of the CBN to ensure quick acceleration of the export value chain in the country.
“I know there have been calls to make all exporters eligible for the rebate, not just limit it to finished and semi-finished products.
