Before coins were re-introduced, goods or services were priced in multiples of fives because but since the death of coins and the near extinction of some Naira notes, price levels have been affected greatly, which means no goods could be bought for 1 Naira because no such denomination is available, so lowest-priced goods stayed at 5 Naira and Naira 10 Naira.
