Veteran Nigerian singer, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, has raised an alarm that the newly redesigned N1000, N500, and N200 notes have gone out of circulation.
We reported that the Supreme Court in March ruled that the old version of the Naira notes shall continue to be legal tender with the new Naira notes until December 31, 2023.
Emmanuel Agim, a member of the seven-man panel of the court, who read the lead judgement, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive for the redesign of the new notes and withdrawal of the old notes without due consultation is invalid.
However, Charly Boy in a post shared via his Twitter page, said he observed that only the old notes are being circulated since the apex court’s ruling.
He shared a photo that reads, “I nor dey see new naira notes again oo.”
He captioned it, “Why why why? Can somebori tell me why?”
