History has been made as Priscilla Ekwere Eleje has become the first woman to have her signature of the Naira.
Eleje has been the acting director of currency and operations at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
She was confirmed, substantive director of the apex bank.
Eleje is the first female director of currency in the history of the bank, and her signature has been appended on the naira.
Ladi Kwali, Nigeria’s foremost potter, is the only woman on the naira, taking a spot at the back of the N20 note.
Every naira note in the country’s history — save the N20 note — has had the face, name, and signature of a man, up until now.
