Family rejects old naira notes as bride price

Meanwhile, previously reported that the January 31 deadline for use of old naira notes as stated by the Central Bank of Nigeria is affecting certain transactions and even pre-wedding deals between families. This is as a family in Gbako local government area of Niger state has rejected old N1,000 and N500 notes from the family of their daughter's suitor as bride price.

As Daily Trust gathered, the suitor's family went to the would-be in-laws with a particular sum of money for the bride price and other items ahead of the wedding ceremony. However, the girl's family rejected the money and asked for new notes because the old ones would be useless by the time they would be ready to buy the needed stuff which will be after the CBN's deadline. The family also noted that at the moment, they do not have a bank account to deposit the money, hence their demand.
