JAN Partners CBN on Financial Literacy Among Youths
A non-governmental organization, Junior Achievement (JA) Nigeria, has partnered with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to help youths take charge of their financial and economic future.
The Executive Director of the NGO, Foluso Gbadamosi, disclosed this at the just concluded Global Money Week 2023 on Wednesday in Lagos.
According to Gbadamosi, the partnership would help the CBN to achieve a 95 per cent financial inclusion target by 2024.
He said JA partnered with the CBN to help young adults own their economic future.
Gbadamosi noted that only 44.8 per cent of adults in Nigeria are included in the financial system.
“Junior Achievement Nigeria in alignment with CBN aims at helping young people own their economic future,” he said.
He said the aim of the partnership is to ensure youths progressively acquire the information, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed to make sound financial decisions, achieve financial well-being and financial resilience.
“This partnership ensures that the ultimate goal of the Global Money Week, which is to make all children and youth have access to high-quality financial education and learn about money matters, is achieved.
“The partnership is also to make them make smart financial decisions that can improve their future financial well-being.”
