The Central Bank of Nigeria has appealed to Nigerians to be patient as the new redesigned naira notes will be in circulation and accessible in no time.
Governor of the CBN, Godwin Emefiele who made the appeal yesterday said people should be calm and adopt a good queuing system while trying to get the new notes.
His statement reads,
“I understand the agitation and I’m begging in God’s name, we are on our knees begging people to please show understanding.
“In our meetings with the banks, we have told them to set up tents and chairs, give people numbers, which I’m sure some people will say it is old fashioned.
“But at this time that we’re trying to get the currency in circulation amongst everybody, people have to have numbers and they come in under a queueing arrangements that when you come in you get served, if it finishes, just be patient.
“By tomorrow, when you come back, they will start from where they stopped, you will not be cheated.
“Let’s just be calm and adopt a good queueing system, the assurance we give is that it will eventually go round
