The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has commended the move by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to redesign and reissue higher denominations of the Nigerian Currency, the Naira.
PLATFORM TIMES recalls that the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele announced that the apex bank had obtained approval of President Muhammadu Buhari to redesign and issue new N200, N500 and N1000 notes that shall come into circulation by the 15th of December, 2022.
PLATFORM TIMES reports that the Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa described the move by the apex bank as “a well-considered and timely response” to the challenges of currency management which has negatively impacted the country’s monetary policy and security imperatives.
Bawa added, “The EFCC, the CBN and some other regulators in the financial sector have worked closely in the recent past to determine how best to stabilize the country’s monetary policy environment.
“It is heart-warming that the CBN has demonstrated courage in taking this bold decision which I believe will bring sanity to the currency management situation in Nigeria”, he said.
