Former Kano Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi, has stated that the Arabic inscription on the naira notes will remain in the redesigned currency. Sanusi claimed that the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, had guaranteed him that the Arabic inscription would not be deleted from the redesigned notes.

The CBN announced last week that it has redesigned the 1000, 200, and 100 naira notes, which will come into effect on December 5th, 2022. The CBN’s announcement elicited mixed reactions, with some Islamic scholars alleging that redesigning the naira was a plan to get rid of the Islamic inscription.

Some Nigerians persuaded the apex bank to get rid of the Arabic inscription from the redesigned naira, citing Islamic scholars’ concerns. Sanusi responded by urging Islamic leaders to confirm their information and stop making unsubstantiated claims.

“There has been some speculation about the change of some naira notes. Several scholars made comments, with some insinuating that the Arabic writings on the naira notes would be removed.

We spoke with some people at the Central Bank since the issue arose, and they revealed to me that such a plan does not exist.” When the misunderstanding spread, I spoke with the CBN governor himself, who confirmed that there was no plan to remove the Ajami.

As a result, I would like to appeal to Islamic scholars to please refrain from acting on unsubstantiated reports, he told the Bellnews
