 The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has announced its plans to introduce the N5000 note and redesign the N50 denomination.

The faces include prominent politician and social mobiliser, Margaret Ekpo (1914 – 2006); the late politician and activist Hajia Gambo Sawaba (1933 – 2001) and the late politician and women's right activist Funmilayo Kuti (1900 -1978).
