Incase You Missed It
After two decades, Nigeria’s currency has received a new look, but not entirely. Last month, Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, announced that the Naira would be undergoing some design changes and advised Nigerians to brace themselves for a makeover.
In his announcement, he stated that the exchange of old notes for new ones would begin in December and that the old notes would be completely phased out by 2023.
In accordance with the CBN’s directive, it was announced yesterday that Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, would unveil the new notes today, 23rd of November, 2022.

The President unveiled the new naira note, and Nigerians on social media has gone into frenzy in response to the new treads. The brightness of the new notes appears to differ from that of the old ones. Aside from that, there hasn’t been much of a shift.
The colors of the old notes were kept, but they were switched around. The new N200 notes, for example, appear to be the same color as the N10 notes, the new N500 notes appear to be the same color as the N20 notes, and the new N1000 notes appear to be the same color as the N50 notes.
The new notes kept their original dimensions and faces. There was no new Nigerian figure added to the notes.
