President Muhammadu Buhari has unveiled the redesigned naira notes of N200, N500, and N1000 at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa Abuja.
The unveiling of the naira notes preceded the virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday.
The launching of the notes was slated for 15 December but was brought forward by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
The Governor of the CBN, Godwin Emefiele, who announced the shifting of the date at a media briefing to mark the end of the 288th Monetary Policy Committee meeting on Tuesday urged those in possession of the old notes to hurriedly deposit them at the nearest bank branch.
This would enable them to beat the 31 January 2023 deadline to dispose of the old notes.
