The Naira gained 0.27 percent from N410 to a United States Dollar it exchanged on Friday to N408.90 on Monday at the NAFEX window.

The local currency plunged to as low as N412 to a single dollar before moderating to N408.90.

Investors at the window traded US$50.67 million during Monday trading hours.

At the black market, the Naira exchanged at N485 to a dollar, lower than the N482 it sold on Thursday.

Similarly, the British Pound gained N1 to N676 against the Naira on Monday while the Naira lost N2 against the Euro to N582.

Weak foreign reserves amid low crude oil production continue to erode Nigeria’s forex generation. Despite efforts to improve dollar inflow through diaspora remittance, scarcity persists.

The Central Bank of Nigeria launched a Naira 4 Dollar scheme to encourage remittance inflow shortly after placing a ban on cryptocurrency. While banks after started paying N5 for every $1 received, the effect is yet to crystalise.

Naira Notes - Investors King

Naira extended its decline on Tuesday as it hits N557 against the United States Dollar at the parallel market, popularly called the black market.

The local currency exchanged at N557 to a United States Dollar at the black market, representing an all-time record low against the greenback. Against the British Pound and the Euro common currency, the Naira slid to N760 and N645, respectively.

Africa’s largest economy is enmeshed in low forex liquidity caused by poor economic structure that over the years has limited and weakened the nation’s foreign revenue generation. This weak foreign revenue generation has impeded Nigeria, a largely import dependent economy, from effectively servicing her economy with necessary forex for economic activities.

The inability to service the economy with enough forex coupled with the decision of the Central Bank of Nigeria to halt the sale of forex to Buruea De Change Operators have compounded Nigeria’s forex situation and further disrupted the Naira’s outlook.

Still, the apex bank continues to post its inaccessible official rates as shown in the table below. Despite insisting that exchange rates are stipulated Central Bank of Nigeria’s rates, many Nigerians and businesses operating in the country find it hard or impossible to access forex at the central bank’s rates.

The Central Bank of Nigeria sells U.S Dollar at N410.51, while the British Pound and Euro are sold at N568.1869 and N483.6629, respectively.

eNaira to Protect Nigerians, Strengthens Financial System – CBN

Published

on

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), eNaira, will strengthen the Nigerian banking system and protect Nigerians from the unregulated crypto space.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), eNaira, will strengthen the Nigerian banking system and protect Nigerians from the unregulated crypto space.

Mr. Folashodun Shonubi, the Deputy Governor, Operations, CBN, disclosed this at the virtual Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) advocacy dialogue series 4 held on Thursday in Lagos.

He said eNaira will make it easier for operators in the banking system to comply with existing laws such as customer protection against fraud and anti-money laundering.

Shonubi explained that “The Central Bank in its implementation has ensured the e-Naira feeds our economy and provides greater value.

“The central bank digital currency offers all the benefits of cash but in digital form. Every single digital currency is an electronic version of the cash, the legal tender. When you make a cash payment, settlement is done instantly; digital currencies entail the same promises and even more.

“CBDC offers a safer option from the privately issued cryptocurrency which have been based on the possibility to enable cheaper transactions but have now been used for investment.

“The intention is not to eliminate other forms of payment but to complement the current areas of payment options, thereby ensuring the stability of the payment system in the long run. I expect in the coming days we will see rapid inclusion rates.

“For banks in developing nations, it will enhance their liquidity, efficiency in national remittances and challenge the high cost of remittances as the world rebounds in the post-pandemic. I am of the view that the era of CBDC promotes greater opportunities, and the central bank must be aware of the risks and mitigate them.”

Also speaking at the event was Lamido Yuguda, the Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He said eNaira scheduled to be launched in October 2021 will help deepen the capital market, increase financial inclusion and further diversify deposit and payment methods.

Yuguda said, “This is an opportunity for the fintech market to connect our people to existing opportunities in the financial market, connecting our people with investment opportunities in other climes. Once we do that, we would grow our market, Nigeria has 200 million people. We are blessed with a hardworking youthful population.

“This capital market would in turn finance the necessary infrastructure investment that this country needs today.”
