CBN introduces N5,000 notes

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Thursday announced that it is going to introduce N5,000 note into circulation.

Unlike earlier speculated, the faces of three prominent Nigerian female activists are to be used on the new note.

They are:
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.

  1. I got this from a friends wall and feel its worth sharing: A man and his wife were going to a place in their car when an old man standing by the road side beconed on them to carry him. They first decided not to wait because of the rampant cases of kidnapping happening in that area, but after a few meters,the car suddenly stopped. The man simply came out of the car and went to call the old man. Once the old man entered the car, the man tried starting the car, and it went on smoothly. The old man then said, the arch angelwas told to blow the trumpet last five weeks sunday(15/7/ 2012), but jesus went and covered the mouth of the trumpet, and the old man disappeared. This is a true life strory that happened at emure ekiti. Are you prepared for heaven? God shud make us all ready! Share this story if you love your friends. Good morning friends.
