Avoid bank queues, visit PoS agents, CBN advises

Ahead of the January 31, 2023 dateline for the circulation of old N200, N500 and N1,000 notes, the Central Bank of Nigeria, has urged bank customers not to panic.

CBN’s Director of Internal Audit Department, Lydia Alfa, speaking in Yola, the Adamawa State, urged depositors to patronise bank agents and Point Of Sale operators instead of  waiting in long queues at bank premises.

Alfa, who was on the CBN’s compliance drive to Adamawa State, while answering questions from journalists, said the apex bank had a robust strategy in place to ensure the successful mopping up of the old notes into its coffers.

She frowned at rejecting the old notes ahead of the due date of February 1, 2023, describing those rejecting them now as saboteurs.
