Naira Redesign: We Have Received N165bn Worth Of Old Notes

The Central Bank of Nigeria has revealed it has received over N165bn since it made a call to Nigerians to deposit old Naira notes.

CBN’s Director of Currency Mr Rasheed Adams, who spoke at a post briefing of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting in Abuja on Wednesday, said the figure is far beyond the total receipts it expects, one month after the announcement was made.naira notes
