Dollar To Naira: Naira Plummets To Record Low At Black Market, Trades At N730/$1

The exchange rate between Nigeria’s national currency, the naira, and the US dollar has fallen to a record low on the black market as it was traded at a minimum of N730/$1 on Thursday morning. Compared to Wednesday, this represents a 0.69% depreciation of the local currency, Nairametrics reports.

According to FX traders, the fall can be attributed to the continuous scarcity of forex and increased demand in the market, Nairametrics.

The fall in the exchange rate is following the move by the apex bank to raise the interest rate to a 20-year high of 15.5%, representing 150 basis points increase from the 14% stated at the previous MPC meeting.
