Nigeria may start using new currency in 2020

In 2020, Nigeria might  be saying bye bye to the Naira as its official currency, as it adopts a new currency called the ‘Eco’.

Countries in the franc region and other West African nations such as Nigeria and Ghana, which have their own currencies, have for decades debated creating their own currency, the Eco.

The official symbol for the Eco will be ‘Ec’.

The ‘Eco’ is a single currency that will be adopted by West African countries as from next year as part of the sub-region’s greater structural reforms.

Unfortunately, there is no official value for the Eco currency yet.

But the 17 West African countries are expected to adopt the Eco currency when it will be released. These countries are Benin Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Saint Helena, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.

It’s not just Nigeria that will be dropping their currency “Naira”, even the French speaking West African countries will ditch the CFA Franc, known as “Colonies Francaises d’Afrique,” which was established in 1945 and pegged to the Euro since 1999.

According to reports, the Eco notes will feature great African legends and showcase features of West Africa.

The official bank for the sub-region’s currency will be known as the Central Bank of West Africa (CBWA).

A specific launch date for the Eco has not yet been announced but it has been speculated that January or February  2020 is when the single currency will be launched.

At the moment only eight West African countries are 100% percent sure  of  using the ECO from the year 2020. These countries include Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo

There’s high expectations that the Eco is expected to be adopted by Nigeria, Ghana and more West African countries in 2020.


  1. You will use it a lot more than some other machine and its particular accuracy and capacity will
    determine the product quality and sized what you would be able
    to produce. Therefore, only pick the Hon lateral filing cabinet when you
    need to ensure proper record keeping. Not only that, there is also the opportunity to exhibit

    specialized in other important matters once you’re completed with refacing your home

  2. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!|

  3. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

  4. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

  5. I think that what you published made a ton of sense.

    However, think about this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean Nigeria may start using new currency in 2020 » Naijmobile is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

  6. It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for the long
    run and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this publish
    and if I could I want to counsel you few interesting issues or tips.
    Perhaps you could write subsequent articles referring to this article.
    I wish to read more things about it!

  7. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get
    advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!
