A man identified as Nahskid on Tiktok has shared a video of his experience at the bank.
He went to withdraw 5,000 naira and received a bag of coins as his legal tender instead of naira notes.
In the video, he stated that he was confused as he went to the bank to collect 5,000 naira cash but was given a bag of 2 naira coins instead to spend as money.
He added that this money was outdated 20 years ago. He wrote that this is what is happening in Nigeria at the moment and encouraged everyone to leave the country.
In his words:
“Nigeria my country, I was given coins when I went to collect naira notes at the bank, 2 naira coins to be specific, we are moving backward, start leaving the country.”
Reacting to the video, @pricelessziva wrote: “That same Abroad you talk about their spending coins there.”
@dear_potter added: “If we can start using coins the economy will balance back…Thing without value will start appreciating again…A good economy need coins.”
