A video shared online captures the moment a bus conductor in Lagos rejected the newly designed naira note from a female passenger has been shared online.
The lady had boarded the commercial bus to work on Thursday, December 15, and paid the conductor with the new N1,000 note but he refused to collect it.
The conductor, who was scared of being swindled, said he can’t collect the money because he is not familiar with it yet. However, the lady insisted that she didn’t have any other money on her.
The conductor, who was skeptical about the authenticity of the money, told the lady to alight from the bus and enter another bus because he doesn’t want to risk collecting the money.
Fortunately for her, other passengers pleaded on her behalf and urged the conductor to collect the money because it is already in circulation, before he eventually collected it.
