Many youths of today do not know that Nigeria once used foreign currencies as official money before changing to the naira notes that we have now.
A young lady has taken to social media to share pictures of the old ‘one pound’ Nigerian man dropped in an offering basket. Identified as @Reetah_kay on Twitter, she disclosed that the currency was used between 1907 and 1973.
She further wondered how that person would have kept such a currency for a very long time and then dropped it in the offering basket recently.
Her post reads: “After Sunday service those counting the money did their work and guess what they found? ‘Nigeria's own One Pound’ I mean ‘one pound’ used between d year 1907 and 1973... Now my question is, how did dis person manage to keep dis currency till date?”
