New Naira Notes : Zamfara NOA embarks on public enlightenment


The National Orientation Agency, (NOA) in Zamfara State has begun sensitizing residents on the new naira notes at Mosques, Churches, Motor parks and marketplaces.

Addressing people at the central motor park in Gusau, the acting state Director of the Agency, Aminu Ibrahim explained that the public enlightenment was in collaboration with the Central Bank of Nigeria, (CBN) Gusau to ensure proper awareness of the new notes.

“The awareness campaign was to further inform the general public of the deadline set by the CBN for the expiration of old naira notes”

Ibrahim further stated that to ensure that customers understand the deadline for returning old naira notes to banks, about 2000 volunteer war brigades were engaged to take awareness to rural community members in the state.

“The awareness campaign is also to ensure customers know that the deadline of CBN is still 31st of January, 2024 when old naira notes will no longer be a legal tender”

According to him, NOA’s awareness campaign has reached Mosques, Churches and motor parks across the state.

“We have deployed volunteers like war brigades and some of our workers to rural areas for more public enlightenment on the need for rural dwellers to adhere to the deadline for transaction with old naira notes and the re-designed notes which are now available at banks in the state”
