Nigerian musician and activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has raised alarm about the non-circulation of the newly redesigned N1000, N500, and N200 naira notes.
Recall that in March, the Supreme Court decided that the prior version of the Naira notes, as well as the new Naira notes, would remain legal tender until December 31, 2023.
Emmanuel Agim, a member of the seven-judge panel, who presented the lead decision, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s order to redesign the new notes and withdraw the old ones without appropriate consultation was invalid.
However, Charly Boy took to his Twitter page to share a message claiming that only the old notes are currently in circulation since the court’s decision.
He shared a picture stating: “I nor dey see new naira notes again oo.”
His caption read: “Why, why, why? Can somebori tell me why?”
