The House of Representatives, Tuesday, resolved to invite commercial banks, on Wednesday over the scarcity of new naira notes.
Under the auspices of the Bankers’ Committee, the Managing Directors/Chief Executive Officers of the banks will meet with an ad hoc committee of the House that will be led by the Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa.
The House, at the plenary on Tuesday, resolved that the banks should be invited to explain the alleged supply shortage from the Central Bank of Nigeria, after which the lawmakers would invite the leadership of the apex bank for questioning.

The House further resolved that the window for swapping the old notes with the new ones be extended by six months.
The resolution followed the unanimous adoption of a motion of urgent public importance moved by a member of the House from Katsina State, Sara Soli, at the opening of the session.
Soli noted that the CBN was insisting on the January 31 validity deadline for the new N1,000, N500 and N200 notes despite that Nigerians have limited access to them.
