Video: Reactions As Bank Hides New Naira Notes In Vault Amid Scarcity
A video has surfaced on the internet showing how an unnamed bank hid new Naira notes in their vault.
Naija News reports that since last week, bank customers, traders, marketers, and the general public have been in a tussle to get the newly redesigned N1000, N500 and N200 notes across the country.
The untold hardship had come on citizens following a deadline by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for swapping the old denominations for new ones.
Amid lamentations by Nigerians, however, the viral video obtained by Naija News on Saturday evening showed how the new notes were hidden behind old notes in the bank whose name is not made public yet.
In the video, bank workers could be seen withdrawing some old notes from the vault to reveal the hidden new notes from where they were stacked from behind.
An official could be heard in the background of the video demanding that the new Naira notes she had seen be loaded into the banks’ Automated Teller Machines (ATM) so that customers could have access to money.
Watch the viral video clip below:
Naija News reports that the video has generated a barrage of reactions on social media as netizens condemned the act by the unnamed bank.

tonero1979 – “This is the only reason I agreed with Buhari that change needs to begin from is the citizens. Greed and lack of love is the greatest problem of Nigerians.
abiebhodeemmanuel – “The problem has never been the cbn, but the deposit money banks. Agreed, the CBN sent lesser than the used to , but that should have been enough on the ordinary, except for the greed of bank managers who run pos points left , right,centre as well as service politicians at home to enjoy cuts and interest on delivery.
abbyameh – “So it’s the banks causing the chaos and not really the govt.
