Governor of Anambra state, Prof. Charles Soludo, has said the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has confirmed to him his directive to commercial banks to dispense old Naira notes and receive the same from customers.

Soludo, in a tweet titled “GOVERNOR SOLUDO: SPECIAL PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT” and signed by him on Monday, disclosed that the directive was given by the CBN boss at a Bankers’ Committee meeting held on Sunday.
The state chief executive, who was a CBN governor, said, “Commercial banks have been directed by the Central Bank to dispense old currency notes and to also receive same as deposits from customers.

“Tellers at commercial banks are to generate the codes for deposits and there is no limit to the number of times an individual or company can make deposits.
“The Governor of the CBN gave the directive at a Bankers’ Committee meeting held on Sunday, 12th March 2023.

“The Governor, Emefiele, personally confirmed the above to me during a phone conversation on Sunday night.

“Residents of Anambra are therefore advised to freely accept and transact their businesses with the old currency notes (N200; N500; and N1,000) as well as the new notes.

“Residents should report any bank that refuses to accept deposits of the old notes.
“Anambra State Government will not only report such a bank to the CBN, but will also immediately shut down the defaulting branch,” Soludo added.
