Meanwhile the Central Bank of Nigeria has devalued Naira to N640 for a dollar, from N461.6 sold at the Importers and Exporters (I&E) window the previous day.
The Naira was devalued barely 48 hours after President Bola Tinubu announced his plan to unify the country’s exchange rate to stimulate the economy.
A wide margin between the I&E window and the black market has encouraged round-tripping with Bureau de Change operators.
The CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele discussed the issue of the exchange rate at a meeting with Tinubu on Tuesday, May 30.
From the year 2020 to 2022, the CBN spent about $42 billion intervening in the foreign exchange market to stabilise the naira. The amount was sold to the end-users, including students and tourists, at the official rates, which are way off the effective exchange rate of the Naira.
