Old Naira notes deadline: CBN direct banks to work on Sunday
In the bid to mop up all the unwanted old Naira notes still in circulation, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has directed all banks in the country to also work tomorrow Sunday.
The Director of Currency Operations, Ahmed Umar disclosed this to journalists during a press conference in Katsina on Sunday.
He also said that the apex bank ruled against banks issuing the new notes from across the counters but through ATM machines to avoid discriminating between big and small customers.
“We believe that using the ATM machine will give people equal opportunity to have access to the new notes.
“We are also able to track the volume of disbursement that is done through the ATM because of the log on it,” Umar said
