Nigeria Changing It's Currency?

We received two phonecalls from Nigeria this morning giving us conflicting information. The first one was a slightly fantic one asking us if we had any Naira with us over here and if we did, to find a way to get it back to the Country before the 1st of April as this was the deadline for the change of the Nigerian currency. The second call was to say that No, Nigeria wasn't changing its currency, it was only planning an addition to the existing denominations.

Now we are a bit confused. Is Nigeria changing its currency or simply launching new denominations? I'd be grateful if anyone can clear this confusion up for us.

A replacement (of some notes: 5,10, 20,50) AND additions (of some coins 50k, N1, N2). You can visit the central bank website to get more info. http://www.cenbank.org/default.asp
