Authorities of the Central Bank of Nigeria have cautioned Finance Correspondents and Business Editors against sensational reporting of stories concerning the apex bank.

Director of Corporate Communications Departments of the CBN, Mr. Ibrahim Muazu, gave the charge in Calabar, at a 4-day seminar for Financial Correspondents and Business Editors in Nigeria.

Muazua noted that the CBN is a sensitive institution where every step, statement, or report touching on the bank has a corresponding effect and impact on the economic sector of the country.

He said: “CBN is a sensitive institution and any information attributed to it is taken seriously, as such journalists or financial reporters should at all times try to understand the issues leading to any directive, development, pronouncement or policy in other to present their report under the right context.”
