The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Tuesday continued its efforts to strengthen the local currency with the injection of $210 million into the foreign exchange market (Forex).
This was to ensure forex dealers meet demands of their customers.
A breakdown of the injection showed that $100 million was allotted to authorised dealers in the wholesale segment of the market, while the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) segment got $55 million and another $55 million allotted to invisibles to cater for those in need of forex for tuition fees, medical payments and Basic Travel Allowance (BTA), among others.
A statement issued by the acting Director, Corporate Communications at CBN, Mr Isaac Okorafor, assured that more interventions would be made to sustain liquidity at the market.
