Protesters take to street over non availability of redesigned naira notes in Ibadan

Commercial activity has been grounded in some areas in Ibadan as protesters barricaded major roads in protest against non availability of redesigned naira notes.

Affected routes include; Iwo road, Gate and other routes in Ibadan North East local government area.

Aggrieved bank customers lamented over inability of the Central Bank of Nigeria, (CBN) to live up to its words of making naira notes available to the customers.

It will be recalled that CBN has on Thursday directed the payment of N20,000 maximum on the counter.

But some of the bank staffers who preferred anonymity maintained that they are yet to get enough fund from the Apex bank.

Meanwhile, the operators of the Point of Sales, (POS) have unofficially put their charge rate on N5,000 at between N500 and N1,000.

This development, as reliably gathered has forced the people along Iwo road axis to take to the streets.

They submitted that most if the Automated Teller Machines, (ATM) are dispensing between N2,000 and N5,000 maximum.

The agonies and pains are too much to bearer. The leadership of this Country are pretending as if nothing is happening. No fuel, No cash, No light. Enough is enough
