In line with FirstBank’s drive to always put YouFirst (customers), the bank branches nationwide will be open this Saturday, 28 January 2023, and Sunday, 29 January 2023 to deposit your old Naira notes from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
The bank said there will be no charges for cash returned/paid into customers’ accounts. All old Naira notes of series N200, N500, and N1000 will cease to be accepted as legal tenders from 31 January 2023 as CBN instructed.
Against the race to beat the deadline given by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for old naira notes to be returned to banks, making way for the circulation of the redesigned N200, N500, and N1,000 notes, FirstBank announced that it will run weekend operations.
The bank said its branches nationwide will be open to receive and change old naira notes, in a bid to help their customers beat the January 31 deadline.
The CBN introduced sensitization campaigns to ensure that rural dwellers meet the deadline. The apex bank has sent agents to remote places across the country to help those who lack access to financial inclusion swap their old naira notes for new ones.
The Bank will continue to accept old Naira notes till the close of business on 31 January 2023.
