Naira notes hardship: Don’t come to Kano yet, Ganduje tells Buhari
Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje for the same reason told President Muhammadu Buhari to postpone his visit to the state as he is “deeply concerned” about the hardship it is causing locals.
“There are no banks in most of our rural communities. How would the people get the new Naira notes is of great concern. Just look at what is happening in our urban areas, people go and spend hours upon hours in banks,” Ganduje said.
Meanwhile, Commercial banks in Nigeria have extended their workdays to weekends for customers to deposit their old naira notes.
First Bank of Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, and other financial institutions have notified customers to visit their branches on Saturday and Sunday to deposit old Naira notes.
“This is to notify the general public that our branches will be open Saturday and Sunday just to receive cash,” one of the banks said in a statement similar to what other financial institutions also sent to their customers.
“All old notes of series 200, 500 and 1000 will cease to be in use from the 31st of January.”
