Nigerians have taken to Twitter to mock the newly unveiled naira notes by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that we had reported that the president on Wednesday unveiled new N1000, N500 and N200 as earlier announced by the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
Many Nigerians expressed disappointment over the new look of the naira.
Nigerians lashed out at the Federal Government for only changing the colour of the Naira notes, saying they expected more changes.
Former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani who took to his Twitter handle to express his opinion, said “If it’s Naira colour,the CBN should have just engage Snapchat”.
Below are other reactions compiled from Twitter.
@DelawGrafix: Instead of the full color design they only remove magenta from 1000 and leave black, yellow and cyan. Then 500 they remove black and leave little magenta, yellow and cyan. 200 has just magenta all through. They didn’t redesign any currency here oo kai naija my country.
@EssienTruth: What’s this? Is this the redesign? Making it look blurry and archaic? Ofcourse, it’s suicidal to expect anything good or exceptional about this government.
@Oil_Shaeik: Nobody can tell me that the new Naira redesign was not intended at forcing people to deposit their monies into the banking system. It worked.
@drpenking: These people just dipped the old Naira notes inside Hypo bleach 3 times, made some incantations and poured libation, then called it new Naira notes. God will judge Emefiele.
