The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has restated that the apex bank is not considering extending the deadline for the swapping of the old naira notes with the newly redesigned naira notes.
This was made known by Emefiele during an ongoing special briefing of journalists at the CBN office in Lagos on Friday, February 3, 2023.
