Naira Swap : N1,000, N500 to remain legal tender in Kaduna _ El-Rufai

1 min read

Governor Nasir El-Rufai yesterday said the N1,000 and N500 Old notes will remain legal tender in Kaduna State in line with the Supreme Court order.

He urged residents to disregard President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that only the old N200 will be in use until April 10.

In a state broadcast, El-Rufai, whose state was among those who filed a suit at the Supreme Court and secured an injunction against the Federal Government and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), assured the people that no one would lose their old N1,000 and N500 notes.

The governor blamed those who lost out in the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries for being behind the policy, which he emphasised has brought untold hardship on the people.

El-Rufai also accused the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), of misleading the President.
