Dollar Hits N600 At Parallel Market In Lagos And Abuja

Posted by Thandiubani on Tue 17th May, 2022 - tori.ng

Naira has weakened in the parallel market due to increased speculations, falling external reserves, and low foreign exchange inflows into Africa’s biggest oil producer.

 
The naira has depreciated against the dollar at the parallel market to exchange N600/$1 on Monday, according to a report by Punch.
 
The rate at the Importers and Exporters Window however stood at N415.75/$1 on Monday, widening the exchange rate spread to N184.25.
 
At Zone 4 in Abuja, which is the hub of the parallel market in the Federal Capital Territory, two Bureau de Change Operators,  Mohammed Isa, and Abu Abdullahi, told The PUNCH that the rate was N599/$ at 10am and 11.14am respectively.
 
However, the rates for both BDCs changed to N600/$ when they were separately contacted at N3.13pm and N5pm respectively on Monday.
 
“If I reduce this by N1, I will not be able to make any profit,” one of the two BDCs, Abu Abdullahi, said.
 
At the Lagos airport on Monday, a BDC operator, Adamu Haruna, told The PUNCH that the rate was “N600/$, no more, no less.”
 
A BDC operator at Amuwo-Odofin in Lagos, Bala Usman, gave an initial rate of N598/$ in the morning but changed to N599 at 2.53pm when contacted.
 
“The demand is increasing and the dollar is very scarce now,” he said.
