In compliance with the established tradition of obedience to court orders and
sustenance of the Rule of Law Principle that characterized the government of
President Muhammadu Buhari, and by extension, the operations of the Central
Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as a regulator, Deposit Money Banks operating in
Nigeria have been directed to comply with the Supreme Court judgement of
March 3, 2023.


Accordingly, the CBN met with the Bankers’ Committee and has directed that
the old A200, N500 and A1000 banknotes remain legal tender alongside the
redesigned banknotes till December 31, 2023.
Consequently, all concerned are directed to conform accordingly
