Aisha Buhari Shares Fake CBN Circular On Old Naira Notes


Aisha Buhari, wife of the Nigerian President has shared a fake news on Tuesday claiming that the Central Bank of Nigeria has ordered the recirculation of the old N500, N1000 Naira notes until May 10.

The circular reads: “Due to the current and unpleasant situation happening in Nigeria, in line with Mr, President, after having a closed meeting with him on the 20th of February, 2023. Central Bank of Nigeria has been directed to only reissue and recirculate the old N 200, N500 and 1000 banknotes and this is expected to circulate as legal tender for 70 days up to May 1, 2023. Members of the public should therefore continue to spend the old notes.”

Following the viral report, the CBN on Twitter debunked the circular as fake news.
