Meanwhile, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has announced its plan to prosecute anyone found spraying naira notes at social events such as weddings, burial ceremonies, and others.
In a statement signed by its spokesman, Osita Nwanisobi, the apex bank described the act as an “unpatriotic practice”, adding that it will be working with the Nigeria Police Force to arrest anyone found abusing the naira.
The CBN stated that the statement was necessitated by the recent activities by those who flagrantly abuse the legal tender by spraying, dancing or stepping on it at parties.
The apex bank, however, urged Nigerians to respect the Naira which is the country’s legal tender and symbol of national pride.
