In an apparent bid to douse the mounting tension occasioned by the currency swap policy, President Mohammadu Buhari today ordered the CBN to release to the public the withdrawn old N200 notes.

Buhari gave the order during a nationwide broadcast this morning.

The old N200 will remain in circulation along with the new N200, N500 and N1000 and other legal tenders until April 10, 2023.

It remains to be seen if this new order would help reduce the tension already enveloping the land.
