Bring Your Old Notes, I Will Help You Deliver Them To CBN’ – El-Rufai Tells Kaduna People

 Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has urged state residents to collect old N1000, N500, and N200 naira banknotes and will work with other key stakeholders (the CBN) to hand them over to the Central Bank of Nigeria to issue new banknotes. will be replaced with Naija News reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman made a statement on his national broadcast Thursday night.

 On-air, El-Rufai told residents of the state to continue using old naira banknotes early Thursday morning, in defiance of President Muhammadu Buhari's orders. Recall that when President Buhari previously addressed Nigerians, he said that the old N1,000 and N5,000 Naira notes were no longer legal tender. Nigeria's leader said only old N200 banknotes will be accepted until April 10, when the transaction will be accepted. But in his broadcast to the people of Kaduna State on Thursday night, El-Rufai urged them not to panic but to stand up for democracy, peace, and national unity. He said there are plans to collect data and old bills from residents and deliver them to CBN, while new bills will be given to them after his 2023 general election. The traditional agency, the Dealers Association, assured them that they were working with the legislator.

He said: As governor, the Kaduna state government will work with elected legislatures, traditional institutions, elected local government councils, markets, and merchant associations to transfer all old bills to the state’s Kaduna chapter." We want to guarantee that we will support the central bank directly on your behalf to convert it into a new one after the election. We also guarantee that the new banknotes will be delivered to various locations without any problems or costs. If desired, from March to December 2023, take the panic and stress out of the long journey from your community to the CBN office in the state capital. For the avoidance of doubt, until the Supreme Court of Nigeria decides otherwise, all banknotes, old and new, will be used as legal tender in Kaduna State. The government of Kaduna State and its agencies will seal establishments that refuse to accept old banknotes as legal tender and prosecute their owners. "We will take legal follow-up action."

El-Rufai urged the people not to support the antics of those in power in Aso-rock whom he described as Nigeria's enemies. He urged them to remain patient and resilient in the face of blatant provocation and deliberate disinformation.
