President Goodluck Jonathan will on Wednesday unveil the specially designed commemorative N100 banknote by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The CBN disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

The bank said the commemorative note was part of its contribution to the centenary celebration and was in line with its mandate of issuing legal tender currencies for the country.

The statement read in part, “The choice of the N100 denomination is to mark the centenary celebration of Nigeria and is consistent with best global practices for central banks around the world during the celebration of national events.

“Part of the features of the commemorative banknote is the inscription of the theme of the centenary celebration: ‘One Nigeria, Great Promise’ as a micro-text.

“While retaining the portrait of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo on the front, the new note features Nigerian traditional dancers at the back. The commemorative note comes in different dominant colours.”
