President Goodluck Jonathan unveils new 100 naira note

The Central Bank of Nigeria has introduced a new N100 bank note, which will be unveiled by President Goodluck Jonathan tomorrow, Wednesday 5th of November, 2014. The note will be released as part of commemorative efforts to laud the centenary celebration and is also to show the mandate of the present ruling cabinet to issue legal tender currencies for Nigeria.
It is also a mark of best global practises by the CBN in conjunction with other banks around the world. It has the salient theme of “One Nigeria, Great Promise” as a micro text. 

The note retains the picture of Obafemi Awolowo and the dancers at the bank but is further reinforced to discourage wear and tear, and the ability of saboteurs to create counterfeits.
