BREAKING: Buhari gives approval for use of old N200 notes till April 10

President Muhammed Buhari has authorized the continued use of old N200 notes until April 2023. On Thursday, February 16, 2023, the President gave his approval during a national broadcast.

Recall on Wednesday, there were news reports that the president was considering the extension, given the adverse impacts of the naira redesign policy on Nigerians.




Announcing the development in a televised nationwide address on Thursday, the president said all existing old N1000 and N500 notes remain redeemable at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and designated points.

“To further ease the supply pressures, particularly to our citizens, I have given approval to the CBN that the old N200 bank notes be released back into circulation and that it should also be allowed to circulate as legal tender with the new N200, N500, and N1000 banknotes for 60 days from February 10, 2023 to April 10 2023 when the old N200 notes ceases to be legal tender,” the president said.
