Officials have said they are communicating with the Central Bank in Sana’a to convince officials there to enable the system.
This comes after the Houthis slammed the Yemeni government’s decision to move the Central Bank to Aden and for firing former bank governor Mohammed Awad Bin Hammam.
Yemeni Prime Minister Ahmed Obaid Bin Dagher claimed that the decision to move the Central Bank is one that would restore the country’s economy.
