Emefiel told correspondents, after a meeting with President Muhammad, Buhari in Daura, that the policy on cash withdrawal limit is not intended to hurt anybody but to strengthen the nation’s Economy.

Speaking on the amount of the old notes, the apex bank has been able to mop up from circulation, Emefiele said “we have taken more than half a trillion from the banks, so in the bank, we have close to half a trillion.

But what we have done in the central bank is to move more people from different departments into currency processing so that they can process this cash as quickly as possible, and from there, banks can now move what they have them.
