Black market dollar to naira exchange rate today October 20, 2021, can be accessed below.
Glamtush has obtained the official dollar to naira exchange rate in Nigeria today including the Black Market rates, Bureau De Change (BDC) rate, and CBN rates.
LAGOS PARALLEL MARKET RATES October 20, 2021 (BLACK MARKET):
October 20 dollar to naira black market exchange rate: $1 dollar to naira = N572
The local currency opened at N572.00 per $1 at the parallel market otherwise known as the black market, today, Wednesday, 19 October 2021, in Lagos Nigeria after it closed N570.00 per $1 on Tuesday, 19 October 2021
This represents a change of $2 from the previous day. This means dollar to naira changed its position from the previous day.
Note: dollar to naira exchange rate has stabilized at N570-575 per $1 since Monday, October 11.
Even though the dollar to naira opened in the parallel market at ₦572 per $1 today, Glamtush reports that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) does not recognise the parallel market, otherwise known as the black market.
The apex bank has therefore directed anyone who requires forex to approach their bank, insisting that the I&E window is the only known exchange.
Glamtush reports that the black market, the players buy a dollar for N567 and sell for N572 on Wednesday morning, October 20, 2021 after they bought N560 and sold N570 the previous day. This means dollar to naira changed its position from the previous day.
