The fruit seller was captured in a video that went viral on Thursday, December 15, after it was posted by a TikTok user known as Mama.
The video surfacing online showed how the fruit seller doubted that the new naira notes are authentic.
Mama was in transit and decided to buy some fruits for herself and she beckoned the seller who sampled his wares by the roadside.
Already, the man had packaged the fruit and given it to her in the car, but the problem started when she gave him money.
The customer asked the man to choose between the old note and the new one, but the man completely rejected the new one.
The fruit seller said that he won’t take the redesigned N500 notes since he does not know it.
