They also indicate airlines are also seeing their backlogs being cleared.
It is unclear where the source of the supply used to clear the backlog is coming from.

A report from Stanbic IBTC also alluded to the clearing of the forex backlogs.
“Yesterday, the apex bank began clearing the backlog of outstanding Retail SMIS obligations. The total amount cleared is yet to be ascertained.”
