According to the report, Isa affirmed that commercial banks have started issuing both the old and new notes to their customers, although the apex bank is yet issue an official statement.
According to him, “Banks are paying old notes as well as new notes. They are all legal tender.
Yes, the CBN has not issued an official statement on the issue. Anyone banks give to you, you can collect. We just want to make life easy for Nigerians.”
He added that the old notes should not be rejected as they are still a valid means of exchange.
“No. They can’t reject it. It’s all legal tender,” he said.
