JUST IN: No need shifting February 10 deadline – Emefiele

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele has said that there was no need to shift the February 10, 2023 deadline.

it was reported that the Supreme Court issued an order of interim injunction restraining the Federal Government and the CBN from enforcing the February 10 deadline for the phasing out of the old naira notes.

But Emefiele, during a visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss the monetary and currency redesign policy, said shifting the February 10 deadline was needless.

He said: “The situation is substantially calming down since the commencement of over-the-counter payments to complement ATM disbursements and the use of super-agents.
