The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has said that the old naira banknotes will remain a legal tender.

Recall that the CBN had introduced the redesign of N200, N500 and N1,000 denominations in October 2022 and certain deadlines were set for the old notes of these denominations to cease as legal tenders.

But on Tuesday, the CBN informed the public of its desire to extend the legal tender status deadline of the old design of N200, N500 and N1,000 denominations, ad infinitum.

“This is in line with international best practices and to forestall a repeat of earlier experiences,” a statement signed by Isa AbdulMumin, Director, Corporate Communications, said.
