As part of efforts to manage the dollar crisis, Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria have sent out messages to their customers notifying them that they cannot use their Naira debit/credit cards for any transaction abroad for now.

A message sent by one of the banks states that all transactions done outside Nigeria will henceforth be via a dollar debit/credit card.
