CBN Governor Godwin yesterday
Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele met with the country’s president after spending several weeks abroad after state agencies tried to arrest him.
After the meeting, Emefiele extended the deadline for an unpopular banknote replacement programme. He said Nigerians had until February 10 instead of January 31 to surrender the old 200, 500 and 1,000 naira notes.
News outlets reported that many citizens were unable to exchange old banknotes for new ones
