Social media reactions
"Whether we believe it or not, this is one of the reasons that got us where we are today in this country. Cash stored at home or anywhere else has no benefit for anyone even for the saver. You are gradually removing money from circulation. If this money was in a bank for instance, the person will have gotten his money, gotten interest no matter how little and the money would have been turned around."
"The heart of man is desperately wicked. People have d1ed in Nigeria because of hunger and people have committed su1c1de because of debt."
"I do this well but I pour white powder inside the safe through the hole to avoid stories like this I keep the money for months and it still comes out in good conditions."
"So he brought it to the bank so that they would do what? Oti lo, most of it is now worthless and destroyed, there is nothing that can be done with this paper."
"Dam you fit dey save money make you still lose your savings. Nothing is assured spend your money and enjoy life."
"Spend your money, enjoy your life you no go hear, Na so so investment and savings, Shey you Dan see?"
"This goes to prove how fo0lish some people are! They see this paper as asset/ treasure. They ignored others ways of saving in real assets! We will see more!"
"You Dey keep money? But I sure say this person de always ask people for money on God. You keep yours trying to spend others. See your life now."
