Borno State may not beat the January 31 deadline for the expiration of old naira notes.
The state governor, Babagana Zulum, had listed challenges he described as insurmountable for the end of the circulation of the old notes.
He said apart from the non-availability and circulation of the new notes, only three of the 27 Local government areas of the state – Maiduguri Metropolitan, Here and Biu – had functional banks due to insecurity which had rendered majority of the communities in the state inaccessible.
