In keeping with its determination to increase liquidity in the foreign exchange market, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Monday released another $100m into the wholesale forwards segment of the market and pumped an additional $80m into the banks specifically for the settlement of dollar demand for school fees, medicals and Personal Travel Allowance (PTA), among others.

In a release by its spokesman, Isaac Okorafor, the apex bank said that its commitment to providing enough forex for legitimate business remains unshaken, reiterating that it would do “everything possible” to ensure the steady supply of forex to the market.

News Express reports that efforts by the CBN in making available large amounts of forex to the market have led to the appreciation of the Naira by over N85 in less than one week.
Some analysts say that the local currency may well be on a permanent journey to its natural value put by some analysts at less than N300 to the dollar.

CBN had maintained that much of the dollar demand had been a bubble created by speculators and hoarders of the greenback. On a radio programme on Monday the apex bank had warned market players and keepers of dollars to make hay and sell their holdings in order to avoid heavy losses.
