The Brexit saga will have an impact on the performance of the Nigerian external sector. This is because it is inextricably linked to the value of the pound sterling in the forex market. 35% of Nigerian diaspora flows come from the U.K. Therefore, a 5% drop in the value of the pound sterling will translate into a 7% decline in dollar receipts and a slump in the trade balance.
