The Central Bank of Nigeria has frowned at the abuse of the country’s currency by the public, especially during weddings and occasions.
Principal Manager, Currency Operations Department, Ngozi Etim revealed this while speaking on Monday in Gombe at a Fair with the theme ‘Promoting Financial Stability and Economic Development’.
Etim stated that envelope remained the best and acceptable means of extending goodwill at events.
She said, “Money should not be squeezed but put into the envelope. Oil should not be allowed to touch the money; keep it neat like your clothes.
“You don’t dirty your clothes and you don’t keep your clothes on the ground. So, there is need to keep our money well. Don’t match our money, so that it can stay long. Naira is our symbol of identity.”
