Also, at the Bureau De Change (BDC) window, the Naira closed at N363 to a Dollar, while the Pound and the Euro traded at N465 and N414, respectively.
Meanwhile, following the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) recent injection of $195 million into various segments of the inter-bank foreign exchange market, traders have expressed confidence in the ability of the apex bank to stabilise the market through its interventions.
The CBN’s intervention at the foreign exchange market has continued to impact the market positively as the Naira had remained stable in the past three months.
However, many Nigerians have expressed worry that the relative stability in the foreign exchange market has failed to stem the rising prices of commodities in the economy.
