Banks Start Paying Nigerians Old N500, N1000 Notes
Some Deposit Money Banks (DMO) have started issuing out old N500 and N1000 notes to their customers in line with the Supreme Court ruling.
Recall that a seven-member panel of the Supreme Court had last Friday held that the old N200, N500, and N1000 notes remain legal tender until December 31.
The apex in its ruling also nullified the Federal Government’s naira redesign policy, declaring it as an affront to the 1999 Constitution.
According to Daily Trust, checks showed that some commercial banks in the City of Kano and Abuja have commenced paying out the old N500 and N1000 notes.
While some branches of Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB) issued out old notes, some others like Polaris bank in Abuja had not commenced as of the time this report was filed.
