Reactions have continued to trail the unveiling of new Naira notes by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Voice had reported that the president on Wednesday unveiled new N1000, N500 and N200 as earlier announced by the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

Reacting to the images of the Naira notes currently making the rounds on all social media platforms, some Nigerians expressed disappointment on the new look.

Several tweeps who took to their handles, tackled the Federal Government for only changing the colour of the Naira notes, saying they expected more changes.

Former federal lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani who took to his Twitter handle to express his opinion, said “If it’s Naira colour,the CBN should have just engage Snapchat”.

@Stephwn Elechi: it looks Fake. Everything is fake , fake everywhere

@DelawGrafix: Instead of the full color design they only remove magenta from 1000 and leave black, yellow and cyan. Then 500 they remove black and leave little magenta, yellow and cyan. 200 has just magenta all through. They didn’t redesign any currency here oo kai naija my country.

@EssienTruth: What’s this? Is this the redesign? Making it look blurry and archaic? Ofcourse, it’s suicidal to expect anything good or exceptional about this government.

@Oil_Shaeik: Nobody can tell me that the new Naira redesign was not intended at forcing people to deposit their monies into the banking system. It worked.

The redesigned currency
The redesigned currency

@drpenking: These people just dipped the old Naira notes inside Hypo bleach 3 times, made some incantations and poured libation, then called it new Naira notes. God will judge Emefiele.
