Today, Wednesday, November 23, 2022, President Muhammadu Buhari unveiled the new naira notes. At the State House in Abuja, he unveiled the newly redesigned notes.
The launch followed yesterday’s disclosure by the Central Bank of Nigeria that the president would launch the new banknotes today. The notes are in the N200, N500, and N1000 denominations.
He also said the new notes would go into circulation before the December 15, 2022 date earlier stated by the central bank.
He made the announcement during a press briefing held after the Monetary Police Committee meeting in Abuja.
Meanwhile, the Director of Information Technology at the CBN, Rakiyat Mohammed, said that about 36 million Nigerians currently had zero access to financial services.
