Welcome to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) AML/CFT/CPF Webpage. A dedicated page for dissemination of the Bank’s AML/CFT supervisory activities.

The CBN as part of measures to protect the integrity of Nigeria’s financial system, continues to deploy appropriate supervisory strategies. The Bank has also continued to implement measure to effectively mitigate the money laundering, terrorist financing, and proliferation financing (ML/TF/PF) risks in Commercial Banks, Holding Company (HCs), Merchant Banks, Non-Interest Banks (NIBs), Primary Mortgage Banks (PMBs), Micro-finance Banks (MFBs), Payment Service Banks (PSBs), Bureaux-de-Change (BDCs), Development Finance Institutions (DFI's), Finance Companies (FCs) and Payment Service Providers (PSPs) under its regulatory purview.

The adoption of a risk-based approach to AML/CFT supervision has continued to guide the bank’s oversight and engagements and this has enabled it to tailor its supervisory activities based on risk posed by each regulated entity.

In addition, the CBN places high premium on engagements with relevant domestic stakeholders to foster collaboration and collective commitment to combat financial crimes for a secure and resilient financial system in Nigeria.

This medium will therefore serve as one of the channels to communicate the Bank’s AML/CFT supervisory activities to regulated entities and the public in general.
