The Central Bank of Nigeria has extended the deadline for the exchange of old naira notes.
Godwin Emefiele, governor of the bank, said President Muhammadu Buhari gave permission for the deadline to be extended to February 10.
He said so far, CBN had collected 1.9 trillion and left with 900billion to achieve effective implementation of policy.
He said Nigerians, who are yet to change their naira notes from the old to new ones, now have an opportunity to do so.
The apex bank’s governor cautioned that people must utilise the opportunity because the deadline will not be extended again.
