PICTURES: Redesigned N200, N500 and N1000 notes unveiled

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday unveiled the redesigned naira notes of N200, N500 and N1000 denominations.

Mr Buhari unveiled the new notes during the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.

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.

The apex bank fixed December 15 as the release date the new notes will be made public while calling on Nigerians to deposit their old notes in commercial banks across the country.

Below are photos of the newly redesign notes as released by Bayo Omoboriowo, the  Personal Photographer of Mr Buhari.
