Commercial banks, corporate entities, ministries, agencies, and merchants are required to accept the old notes in accordance with the public notice or risk penalties from the state government.

It has been noted that certain people and corporate entities are refusing to accept the outdated N200, N500, and N1,000 notes. The Jigawa State Government expressed alarm over these people’s behavior in the statement.

“Jigawa State Government respects the rights of its people, and those refusing the no longer legal tender are enjoined to refrain from defying the law and inflicting hardship on the Jigawa State people,” the statement said.

The Jigawa State Government would not hesitate to implement the Supreme Court of Nigeria’s ruling using section 287(1) of the Constitution (as amended) and other applicable laws.
