Ex-APC Presidential Aspirant tells CBN to Retain  Arabic, others In New Naira Notes 


A former presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, Adamu Garba, has called on the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to retain Arabic and other languages in the proposed-new naira notes. 

The CBN had announced its plan to redesign N200, N500 and N1000 notes. 

Adamu in a tweet on Wednesday hailed the bank for the move and urged that all the languages in those currently in use must be retained. 

“Redesigning the Naira is long overdue. One of the giant strides of CBN Gov. Godwin Emefiele. However, wide-ranging consultation & rapid awareness needs to be created. For trust’s sake, the two official languages of English & Arabic need to remain, in addition to the local ones,” he wrote in a tweet.
