The governor said citizens can now heave a sigh of relief as more cash is expected in circulation as a result of the directive of the CBN.

The apex bank had on Monday asked money deposit banks to dispense and accept old naira notes until December 31, as stipulated by the apex court.

In a statement issued by Zailani Bappa, his special adviser on communications, the Zamfara governor said the suit instituted against the naira redesign policy by some state governments is for the good of the country’s micro-economy and the wellbeing of the average Nigerian.

“This is way after we have won the said presidential election.
