The scarcity of dollars at the parallel market on Tuesday in Lagos has forced the Naira down to N480 to a dollar.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Pound Sterling and the Euro exchanged at N610 and N550, respectively.
Trading at the investors’ window saw the naira closing at N385.98 to a dollar as investors traded a total of $20.27m.
The naira, however, was sold at N381 to a dollar at the official Central Bank of Nigeria window.
NAN reports that the apex bank had hitherto relied on the nation’s foreign reserve and Diaspora remittances in its interventions at the foreign exchange market.
But recent data from the CBN showed that the nation’s foreign reserve fell by $544.94m from $36.17bn on July 1 to $35.62bn on August 3.
