Nigeria’s apex bank, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN has said that all Nigerian Naira notes remain legal tender.

The bank was reacting to news of insufficient funds and the rejection of old notes in some parts of the country.
The bank on its Twitter platform now X Platform, said: “For the avoidance of doubt, while reiterating that there are sufficient banknotes across the country for all normal economic activity, we wish to state unambiguously that every banknote issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria remains legal tender and should not be rejected by anyone, as stipulated in Section 20(5) of the CBN Act, 2007,” said CBN spokesman, Isa AbdulMumin.
Accordingly, branches of the CBN across the country have been directed to continue to issue different denominations of old and redesigned banknotes in adequate quantities to Deposit Money Banks for onward circulation to bank customers.
