Our correspondent who monitored the situation within the state on Monday gathered that most business operators in the state had started rejecting the old naira notes.
It was also gathered that motorcycle operators also known as ‘okada’ rejected the same notes from their customers.
Speaking with our correspondent, a resident, Atiku Abdulrafiu, called on the Central Bank of Nigeria as well as the Federal Government to find a way to extend the deadline of the old naira notes in circulation.
He explained that as of today, most banks in the state still paid customers with the same old naira notes.
“I was in the bank today to withdraw, we withdrew N580,000 and do you know what? All the money given to us were old notes.
We requested new notes but to our surprise, they said no new note is available.
