CBN spokesperson, Isaac Okorafor has said he was not sure that the recovered billions, in mint fresh notes was moved directly from the bank to the NIA.
“It is true the Central Bank of Nigeria issues mint fresh notes, but it is only to banks.
“After that (issuance to banks) CBN does not know which of their customers they (the banks) give those notes to and for what purpose.
“I cannot say if the notes the NIA is claiming came from the CBN. So, I will not be able to answer questions on it for now, except I receive a specific request,” the CBN Spokesperson said.
