Nigeria’s Apex Bank, the Central Bank of Nigeria has said that it has no plan to redenominate or restructure the naira notes in 2024.
The apex bank said this on Tuesday in a statement signed by its Director, Corporate Communications, Isa AbdulMumin, and shared on its X handle.
The CBN urged Nigerians to disregard the wide circulation of a text message suggesting that the Bank plans to redenominate the country’s legal tender next year, noting that the contents of the message are misleading.
“We are concerned that this narrative, which we had refuted before now, appears to be gaining traction with several debates on the implication of
such a policy for the Nigerian economy.
However, it added that while the bank may be considering reforms, “such are subject to laid down procedures in line with the provisions of the CBN Act, 2007.
