The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has injected another sum of $210 million into the inter-bank Foreign Exchange Market, in its desire to sustain liquidity in the forex market, and thereby ensuring that forex is available for customers’ needs in various segments of the market.

According to the figures obtained from the CBN on Monday, the Bank offered $100 million to authorised dealers in the wholesale segment of the market, while the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) segment received the sum of $55 million. Customers requiring foreign exchange for invisibles such as tuition fees, medical payments and Basic Travel Allowance (BTA), among others, were also allocated the sum of $55 million.

Mr. Isaac Okorafor, the Bank’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department (CCD), confirmed the figures and reassured the public that the Bank would continue to intervene in the interbank foreign exchange market in line with its desire to sustain liquidity in the market and maintain stability. He said that the steps taken so far by the Bank in the management of forex was paying off, as reflected by reduction in the country’s import bills and accretion to its foreign reserves.

It will be recalled that last Monday, March 12, 2018, the Bank injected the sum of $210 into the Wholesale segment of the forex market.

Meanwhile, the naira continued its stability in the forex market, exchanging at an average of N360/$1 in the BDC segment of the market yesterday, Monday, March 19, 2018.
