New Nigeria Currency | Redesigned Naira Notes

On October 26, the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele said that the apex bank would redesign Nigeria’s currency from N200 naira denomination to 1,000 naira notes from December 15.

Emefiele said that the action was taken in order to take control of the currency in circulation just as he posited that the bulk of the nation’s currency notes were outside bank vaults and that the CBN would not allow the situation to continue.

He said the planned policy was in line with Sections 19, Subsections a and b of the CBN Act 2007, upon which the apex bank sought and obtained the approval of President Buhari to redesign, produce, and circulate new series of banknotes at N200, N500, and N1,000 levels.

He said the need to take control of the nation’s currency in circulation as well as address the hoarding of Naira banknotes outside the banking system is urgent.

Taking to his Twitter page, Ahmad shared photos of the redesigned 200, 500, and 1000 naira notes which the CBN gave December 15, 2022, as the date to start circulating the currency.
