Dollar to Naira rate in Nigeria - Naija news now

Techscoops Nigeria reports that the players in the parallel market better known as the black market bought a dollar at N593 and sold for N597 on Tuesday afternoon, May 17, 2022.

The exchange rate between the naira to dollar and dollar to naira on Tuesday afternoon showed that the Nigerian official currency, the naira has fallen against the United States dollar months after a steady rise which saw it gain over N25 since it fell to its lowest of N575 to a dollar on September 20, 2021.

Meanwhile, Newsone Nigeria reports that this is coming months after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had on July 27, 2021, suspended foreign exchange (forex) sales to BDC operators and directed all those with a genuine need for forex to revert to banks. The naira lost value at a whooping N85 to the dollar in less than two months from N490/$1 to N575/$1 on September 20, 2021.

Even though the dollar to naira opened at the parallel market (black market) at ₦597 per $1, Techscoops 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.
