Naira Exchanges for N398 Per Dollar at Parallel Market

The naira firmed up against the dollar at the parallel market on Tuesday, closing at N398 to the dollar.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the naira appreciated from the N410 it posted at the segment on Friday

It was traded at N497 and N430 to the pound sterling and Euro, respectively, at the segment.

At the Bureau De Change, the dollar was sold at N362 to the dollar, while the pound and the Euro closed at N495 and N428 respectively.

Trading at the interbank saw the naira closing at N306 to the dollar.

Traders still expressed optimism that the naira might sustain its appreciation against the dollar as the CBN maintained its liquidity boost to all the segments of the market.

Meanwhile, the President, Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria, Aminu Gwadabe, has said that BDCs were working hard to close the gap between the official and the parallel market rates.

He commended the CBN for increasing the volume of foreign exchange offered to BDCs weekly and promised that its members were ready to drive down the rate if the apex bank continued to inject more liquidity to the sector. (NAN)
