As at yesterday night, the situation was dire. I can verify that the Naira was N366:£1 and that was the official bank rate….bear in mind, this time last year, the Naira was around N260:£1…What has gone wrong? #NotgoodAtAll

The black-market rate, used by exchange bureaus in Africa’s largest economy, depreciated 5.8 percent to 260 per dollar compared with its level on Monday, according to Aminu Gwadabe, president of the Lagos-based Association of Bureau de Change Operators of Nigeria. That’s 24 percent weaker than the official rate of 198.52 per dollar as of 12:56 a.m. in Lagos.

Only about 1,200 of 3,000 currency-exchange operators received the amount of dollars they requested from the central bank last week, Gwadabe said by phone from Lagos. “From what we see, the central bank is still unable to meet majority demand,” he said.

A spokesman for the bank, Ibrahim Mu’azu, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment as two calls to his mobile phone didn’t connect.

Policy makers are under pressure to devalue the naira after this year’s 32 percent plunge in oil, which accounts for about 70 percent of government revenue, contributed to the 14 percent slide in Nigeria’s reserves in 2015 to $29.6 billion. The nation’s official exchange rate has been kept at 198-199 per dollar since March after the central bank restricted the ability of lenders to buy foreign currency.

In June, the monetary authority stopped importers of about 40 items, including wheelbarrows and glass, from obtaining dollars.

Money changers met with the central bank on Dec. 8 to “discuss the difficulties in ensuring availability of dollars,” Gwadabe said. While policy makers “agreed to make more dollars available” to reduce tension, they have yet to do so, he said.
