Mrs. Priscilla Ekwere Eleje has become the first woman in the history of Nigeria to have her signature of the Naira note.
Mrs. Eleje, who has been acting director of currency and operations at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has been confirmed, substantive director of the bank.
She is the first female director of currency in the history of the bank, and her signature has been appended on the naira — breaking another amazing record.
Ladi Kwali, Nigeria’s foremost potter, is the only woman on the naira, taking a spot at the back of the N20 note.
That’s indeed amazing!
