Ikeduba proceeded to mention that banks have started giving out old notes to customers following the Supreme Court’s ruling on the naira redesign policy.
He, however, added that despite the ruling, there are people refusing to accept the notes as legal tender for business transactions, stating that they haven’t heard anything from President Buhari.
