Breaking: CBN Speaks On Extension For Use, Deposit Of Old Naira Notes



THE Central Bank of Nigeria has insisted that there is no going back on the January 31 deadline for the old 200, 500 and 1,000 naira notes, as they will cease to be legal tender in the country.

The CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele reiterated the CBN stance after the apex bank’s Monetary Policy Committee meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

Emefiele also insisted that enough time was given to Nigerians to swap their old naira notes for new ones.

This is as he also said that kidnapping and ransom-taking had reduced since the three banknotes were redesigned.
