Redesigned Naira Notes

On October 26, Nigerians were shocked when the Governor of Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, announced that new Naira notes would be introduced to replace the current 200, 500, and 1,000 Naira notes.

Vantage News reported, Emefiele said the redesign will take effect from Thursday, December 15, 2022.

He also said that existing notes would seize to be regarded as legal tender by January 31, 2023.

Here are, however, four reasons the CBN decided to redesign the naira notes:

Football Highlights

1. The Naira note was redesigned to address the issue of individuals who have made currency fraud their main source of income. People who have hidden money they have stolen, for instance, would either find a way to change it by taking the money out or would not need it given the change in the value of the Naira.

2. The currency change also aims to deal a fatal blow to the growing kidnapping and ransom industry.

3. The change in the notes is also said to aid in lowering the rate of inflation.

4. The change in the Naira notes is also intended to control the amount of money in circulation.
