Attributed Reason For Naira Surge.

The expectation that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) will inject more dollars contributed to the surge of the naira.

You see, just last week, the CBN pumped $15.88 million into the market at ₦1,101 to the dollar, contributing to the naira’s upward trajectory.

So, this week again, expectations are high that the CBN will sell the greenback to Bureau de Change (BDC) operators.

Normally, the CBN sells dollars to BDCs at rates quoted on the Nigeria Autonomous Foreign Exchange Market (NAFEM).
