Nigerians have reacted after the Central Bank of Nigeria finally bowed to Supreme Court order stating that old N500 and N1000 Naira notes are still legal tender. Recall that the CBN had released a statement saying the old notes are still legal tender hours after President Muhammadu Buhari insisted that he did not order the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, or the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to disobey the apex court’s ruling. The CBN spokesperson, Isa Abdulmumin, in a statement released on Monday, insisted that the old notes remain legal tender until December 31, 2023.
Prior to the decision of the federal government and CBN, many Nigerians have experienced difficulties in accessing the Naira notes and some also lost their lives in the wake of the Naira crisis.

See what some Nigerians are saying about the new development:

nosa__ason wrote: “This has been their plan. They’re all in it together. Watch how they’ll remove the newly designed substandard currency from circulation, and revert back to the old ones. They never really wanted to change the currency design in the first place.”

tonianulia wrote: “But banks aren’t collecting the old notes if you go back to deposit it they will ask you for CBN code if you don’t have they won’t collect it. Because the note bank is giving out wasn’t despense by CBN so where did they get the old note from ? CBN claim to have burn all the old note . This country tire person honestly mitcheew”

Some people missed out on certain businesses because of this fiasco. People spent days in endless queues to get their own hard earned money! All of a sudden CBN is now announcing that old notes remain a legal till December 31st! Who will be held accountable for this?”

pweetie_ik wrote: “We just cherish suffering each other in this country? What was the essence of Naira redesigning in the first instance? what has Buhari and Emefiele achieved?”
