In emailed note to investors, Forex Trading Desk Manager, AZA Finance, a global forex dealer, Murega Mungai, said the slight rebound of the naira followed a fall in demand for the greenback on the parallel market, with the CBN’s 30-day moving average Forex reserves increasing by 3.6 per cent over the past week to $37.6 billion.


“This week, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari sought approval from the National Assembly to raise the 2022 budget by N2.47 trillion to N16.45 trillion, reflecting new fiscal terms in the recently passed Petroleum Industry Act and other critical expenditures in the 2022 budget. We expect the more positive environment for the Naira to continue in the coming week,” Mungai said.

With dollar teller points in banks’ branches now operational , as well as increased dollar supply by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), many forex end-users are gradually abandoning the parallel market for the official selling points.

The CBN recently raised weekly dollar allocation to Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) by 200 per cent to boost dollar liquidity and save the naira from consistent depreciation.

DMBs now get over $400 million weekly allocation to meet legitimate dollar demands.

At the banks’ branches, dollar was selling at an official rate of N412 and that each traveller was entitled to buy $4,000 per quarter for personal travels and $5,000 per quarter for business travels.
