However, Kaduna residents were left in disappointment as businesses refused to accept the old notes from them.
A business owner in the State, Alhaji Mustapha Amodu, however gave a personal reason for his rejection of the old naira notes saying, “if I collect the old notes, banks would reject them.”
Another business owner in the State, Mrs. Hannah Abraham, also said that she would not accept the old naira notes.
“Old notes are no longer acceptable. If there is court judgement, let the president address Nigerians. Court judges are not bank managers that will accept or reject the old notes. They should allow the CBN to speak on the issue. No bank is accepting old notes any longer,” she said.
Also adding to the people’s worries are the religious centres across the State refusing to accept the old naira notes as offerings.
