‘Naira Now Worst Performing Currency In The World’

Nigeria’s currency, the naira, has taken a sharp downturn, becoming the world’s worst-performing currency in the past month, a recent Bloomberg report highlights.

This development has escalated the urgency for the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to potentially raise interest rates further in response to the economic strain.

As of Friday, the naira has fallen to a record low of ₦1,466.31 against the dollar, its weakest since March 20.

This significant depreciation is primarily due to a severe shortage of US dollars in the local market, with the available supply plummeting to just $84 million on Thursday—only half of what it was the previous day.

This reversal comes shortly after CBN Governor, Yemi Cardoso lauded the naira as the best-performing currency worldwide as of April 2024, crediting a series of foreign exchange market reforms and positive feedback from international investors for the brief recovery.
