CBN To Sell Forex Weekly To Retail Users At N375

Nigeria’s central bank plans to sell $1 million weekly to each of the country’s 21 commercial lenders at a rate of 375 naira to clear a backlog of demand and try to narrow the premium between the official and black market rates, traders said on Monday. Traders said commercial lenders have compiled a list of bids from customers awaiting dollars. The central bank has been selling dollars at 305 naira to clear a backlog of demand from manufacturing, agriculture and airline companies, hoping also to help drag Nigeria out of its worst recession in 25 years, triggered by low oil prices.
