Family Rejects Old Naira Notes As Bride Price

Family Rejects Old Naira Notes As Bride Price | Daily Report Nigeria

A certain family in Gbako Local Government Area of Niger State has rejected old two hundred, five hundred, and one thousand naira notes from the family of their daughter’s suitor as bride price.

Reports held that the suitor’s family had gone to the would-be in-laws with a particular sum of money for the bride price including other items ahead of the wedding ceremony.

However, the girl’s family rejected the money and asked for new notes instead.

This was because the old ones would lose legal tender by January 31, according to the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Additionally, the family revealed that at the moment, they do not have a bank account to deposit the money, hence their demand.

A family member of the suitor spoke on the development and said:

We took money to the family of the girl we want to marry. They called me on Sunday to come and take the old currency notes back pending when we have the new naira notes.

They said they don’t have anywhere to change the old notes. So, I want to take it to the bank pending when we get the new notes.”
