Nigerians kick Off Wash Challenge After Video Goes Viral of New Naira Notes Losing Colour

  • This comes after a video went viral showing the color of fresh notes bleeding when soaked in water
  • Several Nigerians have responded by sharing videos of themselves testing if the naira notes are indeed fading color
After the laundry, she had been shocked to find that the note green color had totally been washed off.

Following the viral video made by a lady Chinazo under her Twitter name fluffy Naz stating that the new naira note color fades, a number of similar and counter-videos have emerged on the internet.

In the video, she claimed that her sister forgot the redesigned N500 banknote in her pocket and washed it.

According to her, the 500 Naira note colour faded when it eventually dried.

She wrote: “If rain drenches you and this money is your only hope, you’d be stranded”

Her tweet on Twitter has so far been viewed by 776.8 persons and 2,575 retweets.

Nigerians start new challenge

Her claim has started a new challenge on social media as people try to test if indeed the new naira notes colour bleeds.

However, Dr. Joe Abah Country Director at DAI. DAIMaastricht University, has countered the claim. In a post on his handle @DrJoeAbah he said the claims that the new naira notes losing colour are false.

His words: “I rubbed the new N500 note with water and tissue. No, the colour didn’t come off. Maybe the problem is with the new N1,000 note, which I haven’t seen.

The new N500 note seems fine to me. I’ll try it in a washing machine and report back.”
