Posted by badgeBusayo on 0

Nigerians are expressing frustration and anger after discovering a dumpsite filled with shredded old naira notes. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is believed to have disposed of the mixed-denomination notes as part of the country's cashless policy, which has resulted in a scarcity of physical cash. 

A video that went viral showed people digging into the pile of shredded currency and lamenting their struggle to obtain physical cash. Some Nigerians reacted by expressing disappointment and blaming the government for the situation. However, others said that the CBN has been disposing of old currency notes for over two decades, and this is not a new occurrence.

Voices of Nigerians heard in the background of the video lamented bitterly about the struggle to get physical cash while digging into the pile of shredded Nigerian currency.
