MoneyNewsNigeriaCommercial banks to work on Saturday, Sunday to beat CBNโ€™s 31 Jan. deadline

Ahead of the 31 January deadline set by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), commercial banks will be open this weekend for Nigerians to deposit the old series of N200, N500 and N1000 notes.

The commercial banks include First Bank of Nigeria, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Access bank, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), and First City Monument Bank (FCMB).

Others are Eco bank, Keystone bank, Unity bank, Union Bank, Stanbic IBTC, Zenith bank, Fidelity bank, and Wema bank.

The management of the banks, in a public notice issued on Friday, said the weekend operation was to enable their customers beat the deadline.

The CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele has insisted that the old naira notes would cease to be legal tender from Tuesday 31 January, despite entreaties from different stakeholders that the apex bank should extend the deadline.
