New Naira is the only CBN Legal Tender as Nigerians Reject Old Naira, News latest update now.
Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, stated that there was no need to alter the February 10, 2023 deadline.
During a Tuesday visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss the bank’s monetary and currency redesign policy, he made this statement.
He stated, “Since the introduction of over-the-counter payments to supplement ATM disbursements and the use of super-agents, the situation has significantly improved.
Therefore, there is no need to consider a change to the February 10 deadline, he said.
The Supreme Court had previously restrained the federal government from enforcing the February 10 deadline for the currency exchange.
In a unanimous ruling, a seven-member panel of the supreme court led by Justice John Okoro issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting the Federal Government, the Central Bank of Nigeria, and commercial banks from implementing the Friday termination date for the old naira notes.
