A Nigerian man has brought some old N50 and old N20 paper notes which have gone out of use.
In a video posted on TikTok, the man sampled the Naira notes to the admiration of people who wondered where he got them.
The man showed people the Naira notes and told them that it is the old notes which have been changed in the past.
The old N50 paper notes the man brought out were introduced in 1991. In 2009, this was later replaced by the polymer N50 notes.
Also, the man showcased the old N20 paper notes introduced in 1977 but was later replaced by the current N20 polymer notes in 2007.
The man who spoke in Hausa said in the video: “Well, this is wonderful. This is the old currency. This is the old currency that has been changed before.”
Nigerians who have seen the video on TikTok are wondering how the man preserved the money in such quantity.
The old notes he brought out have the signature of Joseph Oladele Sanusi who was the CBN governor from 1999 to 2004.
