In response to complaints raised by Nigerians on the availability of the new Naira notes, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has extended deadline for the use of old notes till February 10.

As gathered, the announcement was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari during a meeting with the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele.

The president was said to have summoned Emefiele barely 24 hours after the Kano State Governor, Abdullah Ganduje, wrote to him, asking that he abort any trip to the northern state, in order to avoid any embarrassment from the masses whose businesses have badly affected by scarcity of the new note.
