The Kaduna State Government has directed its ministries, departments and agencies to ensure that their revenue collection agents will continue to accept payments in all denominations of the old and new Naira notes.
A statement issued on Sunday, February 19, 2023, by Muyiwa Adekeye, the Special Adviser on Media and Communication to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, said the directive is in line with the subsisting order of the Supreme Court.
“In line with the subsisting order of the Supreme Court, the Kaduna State Government has directed its ministries, departments and agencies to ensure that their collection agents continue to accept payments made in all denominations of the naira, old and new,” the statement read.
“The laws of Kaduna State do not allow personnel of government agencies to be involved in cash collection of revenues. The collection agents authorised by state government agencies do offer citizens a route for cash payment, and are expected to comply with the subsisting court order.”
