He advised people in of the state to take advantage of the remaining days to deposit the old Naira notes in banks before the dateline.

“You should deposit the N1,000, N500 and N200 banknotes in your possession before the dateline of January 31, so that you will not ignorantly keep expired currency in your possession.

“The newly designed banknotes will be the country’s legal tender after the dateline,” he said.

The campaign started from Police roundabout to Jimeta modern market up to vegetable market down to Mubi roundabout and Jimeta shopping complex.
