Central Bank of Nigeria has condemned the rate at which Nigerians mutilate, deface, squeeze and even spray and sell the naira notes. The apex bank threatened that “abuse of the currency attracts a penalty not less than 6 months or a fine not less than N50,000 or both.”

Assistant Director at the Currency Operations Dept, Aladeen Badajo said this Thursday during commencement of CBN two-day sensitisation fair held in Abeokuta. The programme was meant to create awareness about its activities in relation to economic development initiatives.

In his presentation, Badejo urged the people to consider Nigeria’s currency as a symbol of national identity. Badejo who stressed the need to handle the banknotes with care and dignity expressed concern over huge amounts being spent reprinting them. He said, “Abuse of the currency attracts a penalty of not less than 6 months or a fine of not less than N50,000 or both.”

Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department, CBN, Osita Nwanisiobi said the bank attached great importance to sensitisation programmes. Nwanisiobi said the programme had become necessary to enable the bank acquaint the public with its economic development initiatives and to explain opportunities available and how every citizen could take advantage of them.

He added that the programme would also help to receive feedback from the public for consideration in development of other policies. The Director explained that the programme was in tune with the vision of the CBN Governor, which according to him is to operate a people’s Centred Bank

Nwanisiobi further explained CBN’s policies and initiatives were designed to address observed failures in some sectors and with a view to building a strong and sustainable financial system. He, therefore, urged members of the public not only to acquire info about the programmes but also take advantage of them.
