Emefiele said the CBN had approached commercial banks to come and pick the new notes after waving all conditions to accessing the redesigned currency.
He said that the apex bank “is monitoring the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) to know if they are dispensing the new notes”.
The CBN governor warned that the apex bank would penalise any commercial bank that failed to pick the new notes.
He also said any bank that failed to load new notes into their ATMs would attract fines.
