He said the N5. 7 billion allocated to BDCs had become unsustainable as
$20,000 is allocated to over 5500 BDCs, amounting to $110million per week.

Emiefele said BDC operators have become a conduit for illegal financial flows.

He also said the CBN will no longer continue registration of new BDCs and current allocation will be channeled to commercial banks.
