Indications from the presidency shows that President Goodluck Jonathan may instruct the Central bank of Nigeria Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to suspend the printing of the N5,000 banknotes and the conversion of some banknotes to coins (Project Cure) till further notice because of its unpopularity among Nigerians. This could be as a result of the meeting held by the leadership of the National Assembly and the President; in which the printing of the N5,000 banknote was one of the top issues discussed.

Sources said no categorical statement was made by the President Jonathan to Senator David Mark and Alhaji Tambuwal, but there are indications that the Presidency will discuss with the CBN governor and the Economic Team on the need to abandon the project since most Nigerians opposed the printing of a higher banknote.
