History has been made as Pricilla Ekwere Eleje becomes the first woman to sign on the 1000 Naira note. This comes 61 years after the introduction of the Nigerian currency.
The development follows her confirmation as the first female Director of Currency and Operations in the history of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Mrs Eleje was reportedly confirmed Substantive Director of CBN on August 30, 2018, and currencies printed from then on will carry her signature.
Eleje is a psychology graduate from the University of Jos, an alumna of the prestigious Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Programme in Banking and Management at Boston University, Massachusetts, USA. She is also a Certified Information System Auditor (CISA).
