CBN Clarifies: No Plans to Phase Out Redesigned Naira Notes, Despite Reports of Scarcity
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has issued a statement to refute reports that it plans to withdraw the newly redesigned N200, N500, and N1,000 notes from circulation. The apex bank’s clarification comes amid rising concerns about the apparent disappearance of the new notes, which have led to speculation and complaints from bank customers.
Acting director of corporate communications, Isa Abdulmumim, stressed that the speculation was unfounded and a strategy employed by certain groups to incite fear among the public. He also reiterated that both the old and new currency notes were being used concurrently and that the CBN was regularly receiving a substantial amount of updated banknotes from the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPMC) Limited.
Abdulmumim emphasized that the CBN remained committed to supplying the approved indent for the smooth running of the economy. He urged members of the public to disregard any report suggesting a phase-out of the redesigned currency and stated that the redesigned and old notes would continue to be accepted as legal tender. These notes would circulate side-by-side for transactions until December 31, 2023, when the old N1000, N500, and N200 banknotes would eventually be phased out.
Bank Customers Lament Over Counter Payment With Only Old Naira Notes
In an earlier report by GoldenNewsNg, bank customers lamented being paid over the counter with only old naira notes. This has led to concerns about the availability of the new notes in circulation. However, the CBN has reassured the public that the new notes are still in circulation and will continue to be so.
