The video which lasted only 21 seconds was enough to show how the fruit seller doubted that the new Naira notes are authentic.

Mama was on transit and decided to buy some fruits for herself and she beckoned the seller who sampled his wares by the roadside.
Already, the man had packaged the fruit and given to her in the car, but the problem started when she gave him money.
Mama asked the man to chose between the old note and the new one, but the man completely rejected the new one.
He said he won’t take the redesigned N500 notes since he does not know it. His reaction has generated comments among TikTok users.
