  • The below are things you should know about redesigned Naira notes. 


THE NATION REPORTERS reports that there have been a lot of reactions trailing the new redesign of the naira notes. According to many Nigerians on social media, what the federal government did should not be called naira redesign but colour change.


Is there more to the redesigning of the Naira notes than just the Colour?






This online medium recalls that the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, on October 26, 2022, announced that new Naira notes would be introduced to replace the current 200, 500, and 1,000 Naira notes.

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:



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.
