CBN introduces N5,000 notes
Unlike earlier speculated, the faces of three prominent Nigerian female activists are to be used on the new note.
1) Margaret Ekpo (1914-2006), Late politician and social mobiliser,
2) Hajia Gambo Sawaba (1933-2001), Late politician and activist
3) Funmilayo Kuti (1900-1978), Late politician and women’s right activist.
Also the N5, N10 and N20 notes will be coined while N50, N100, N200, N500 and N1, 000 will be redesigned to inculcate new security features.
