At Bodija Market on Wednesday, the cold room operators rather demanded new notes, the traders stated.

The traders, who lamented that they would be in loss if the old notes were not accepted, further begged the federal government to extend the deadline.

Mrs Olayemi Adebayo, who spoke on behalf of the women, said:

We came here to protest. We went to Bodija Market this morning to buy fish, they did not collect old notes from us. That is why we are here this morning.

“We want the government to extend the date for us. The development is affecting our sales. The notes we have collected are old ones. Each of us is holding about N30,000 of the old notes.”
