Mr Doguwa informed the House that the CBN and Mr Emefiele did not honour the invitation to appear before the committee on Wednesday.
The apex bank had in October last year said the old naira notes would seize to be legal tender from January 31, a stance that was reiterated by its governor, Godwin Emefiele, at a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24.
Last November, weeks after the apex bank announced its plan to redesign the three banknotes, President Muhammadu Buhari unveiled the redesigned N200, N500 and N1,000 notes as the apex bank fixed the January 31 deadline for the validity of the old notes.
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had last month announced that the three top notes of the country's currency will be redesigned while the old ones remain legal tender until January 31 next year.
According to him, the CBN won’t shift its deadline for all old notes to be returned to commercial banks in exchange for newly designed ones.
He said when effective from December 15 this year, Nigerians who are in possession of the old notes should approach their banks for the new notes.
