Even though the dollar to naira opened in the parallel market at ₦555 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.
Meanwhile, Glamtush reports that the dollar to naira exchange rate today is coming after Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) led by Godwin Emefiele last month to allow the naira reflect the realities of the market.
The Vice President had said the exchange rate is artificially low and deterring investors from bringing foreign exchange into the country.
