Nigerians Reacts As CBN Says Old Naira Notes Remain Legal Tender Indefinitely

Several reactions have trailed the announcement of the extension of the validity of the old naira notes indefinitely by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The apex bank had announced that it had extended the validity of the old N200, N500 and N1,000 notes indefinitely.

The apex bank’s Director of Corporate Communications, Isa AbdulMumin, disclosed this in a statement titled, “CBN To Allow Old Design Naira Banknotes As Legal Tender, Ad Infinitum”

Abdulmumin said the decision is in line with international best practices and to forestall a repeat of earlier experiences implementing the policy.
