ABUSE OF NAIRA NOTE – BANK ARE TO BLAME FOR DIRTY NAIRA NOTES

Several factors account for the existence of worn out notes: The abuse mentioned above and the attitude of banks who fail to return them for reissue is another”.


He said, “The naira has suffered abuse from a majority of Nigerians. Today, we find some people spraying the naira in occasions, soiling it, writing on it, squeezing it while others are hawking it.
“The CBN spent a lot of money in the printing of this naira notes. We urge Nigerians to respect the naira and value it. Anyone caught abusing the naira will risk a jail term of six months or pay a fine of N50,000.”


He urged Nigerians to desist from home banking, and embrace online transfer system. The theme of the fair was titled, “Promoting Financial Stability and Economic Development.”
