CBN devalues Naira, to restores exchange rate of N380/USD


The Central Bank of Nigeria has made a swap in exchange rate of dollar to Naira as validated in a communique to all banks and Bureau De Change on Friday March 20.


However, the pinnacle bank on Friday sold dollars to deposit money banks at the rate of N380 to one dollar shrieking the official return of a single exchange rate regime in the country’s foreign exchange market.


Furthermore, the CBN directed banks and Bureau De Change to ensure that the end-user sales of the Dollar should not be more than N380/1USD. The communique was on the disbursement of the proceeds of the International Money Transfer Operator (IMTO).


CBN’s communique which seconded the highest official exchange rate between the dollar and naira in over two years, came barely a week after the apex bank denied plan to devalue the Naira.
