Banks cut borrowings from CBN over excess liquidity

Deposit Money Banks have continued to reduce their borrowings from the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The CBN attributed this new development to excess liquidity in the system.

Banks borrowed N15.95billion from the CBN in the Standing Lending Facility window in November, the CBN disclosed this in its latest monthly economic report for November.

Part of the report read, “Deposit Money Banks and merchant banks continued to access the standing facilities window to square liquidity positions in November 2020.

“The trend at the CBN standing facilities window showed more frequency at the Standing Deposit Facility window, compared with the Standing Lending Facility, due to the banking system liquidity surfeit.

“Applicable rates for the SLF and SDF stood at 12.5 per cent and 4.5 per cent, respectively.

“Total request for the SLF granted from November 1-26, 2020 was N15.95billion, made up of N3.15billion direct SLF and N12.79billion Intraday Lending Facilities converted to overnight repo.”
