New Naira: 2.1trn Hoarded Banknotes Have Been Successfully Retrieved – Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari revealed that since the start of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s currency redesign strategy, N2.1 trillion worth of banknotes kept outside the banking industry has been successfully recovered.

This was revealed by Buhari to Nigerians on Thursday during a nationwide broadcast.

According to him, “I have been reliably informed that since the commencement of this program, about N2.1 trillion out of the banknotes previously held outside the banking system had been successfully retrieved.

“This represents about 80% of such funds. In short to medium and long terms, therefore, it’s expected that there would be lowering of Inflation as a result of the accompanying decline in the money supply that will slow the pace of inflation, the collapse of Illegal economic activities which would help to stem corruption and acquisition of money through illegal ways, exchange rate stability, availability of easy loans and lowering of interest rates.”
