MoneyNewsNigeriaFamily rejects old naira notes as bride price in Niger

The fear of CBN’s 31 January deadline for old naira notes has led a family of a young woman in Gbako LGA of Niger State to reject the old N1000 and N500 notes given by their would-be in-laws as bride price.

According to reports, the family of the suitor took an undisclosed amount to the family of the woman as bride price and money for other stuff in preparation for the wedding.

But the family of the would-be bride were said to have demanded the redesigned notes because of the 31 January deadline issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Explaining the situation, a family member of the husband-to-be said, “We took money to the family of the girl we want to marry. They called me on Sunday to come and take the old currency notes back pending when we have the new naira notes. They said they don’t have anywhere to change the old notes. So, I want to take it to the bank pending when we get the new notes.”
