The Nigerian inter-bank foreign exchange market received another boost of $210 million from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) following transactions concluded on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. 

The CBN Director in charge of Corporate Communications, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, disclosed this on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, adding that authorized dealers in the wholesale sector of the market received $100 million, while the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and the invisibles segments were allocated the sum of $55 million each. 

Mr. Okorafor said the Bank’s Management remained particularly pleased with the prevailing stability in the Nigerian foreign exchange market. According to him, the CBN Management, as noted by the Governor in his post-Monetary Policy Committee meeting briefing on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, welcomed the continued stability in the foreign exchange market and the steady accretion to country’s external reserves. 

The spokesman said the CBN would therefore continue its intervention in the forex market to ensure liquidity, maintain stability and meet customers’ demand.
