Na Snapchat filter: Nigerians react to redesigned naira notes |

Weeks after announcing the intention to redesign the Naira notes, President Muhammadu Buhari officially unveiled the new designs on Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

The president unveiled the new N200, N500, and N1,000 denominations, as proposed by the Central Bank of Nigeria before the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the State House, Abuja.

Photos of the redesigned Naira notes that have circulated online show that the denominations have a similar appearance to the previous look, albeit with a slight difference in colour.

Nigerians have now trooped to social media to share their opinions on photos of the Naira notes currently making the rounds, with the majority of them expressing disappointment in the new design.

Reacting, Comedian Basket Mouth wrote, “They clearly used a Snapchat filter for this”, an opinion that Twitter user @Adewale Adetona also agreed with.

Nigerian lawmaker Shehu Sani tweeted, “If it’s Naira colour,the CBN should have just engage Snapchat”. Then he added,

@EssienTruth, “What’s this? Is this the redesign? Making it look blurry and archaic? Of course, it’s suicidal to expect anything good or exceptional about this government.”

“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,” @drpenking added.
