The naira has continued to fall against the dollar at the exchange rate market.
 
According to Reporters, the naira depreciated N570 per dollar on Friday from N540 per dollar the previous week at black market, losing N30, the highest in recent years.
 
In the I&E window, the Naira depreciated by 88 kobo as the indicative exchange rate dropped to N412.88 per dollar on Friday from N412 per dollar the previous week.
 
However, the volume of dollars traded (turnover) in the window rose by 35 percent to $975.63 million last week from $724.11 million traded the previous week.
 
Meanwhile, data on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) website showed that the nation’s foreign reserves gained $600 million as the gross amount rose to $35.4 billion on Friday from $34.8 billion the previous week.
 
The liquid amount also grew by $600 million to $35.1billion on Friday from $34.5 billion the previous week.
 
These were coming as the members of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Monetary Policy Committee, MPC, applauded the apex bank on management of exchange rate thereby urging the apex bank to take further  steps to restrict the activities of unauthorised and illegal dealers in the foreign  exchange market.
 
The communiqué of the MPC meeting held last week in Abuja stated:
Quote
“On the management of the exchange rate, the Committee applauded the Bank for improving foreign exchange supply in the economy to meet legitimate  business and consumer demand.

“Members thus, urged the Bank to take further steps to restrict the activities of unauthorised and illegal dealers in the foreign exchange market, stating that all foreign exchange transactions must be  conducted at the I&E window to ensure transparency and stability.

“The Committee, thus, called on the Bank to intensify surveillance over foreign  exchange sales and utilisation by commercial banks and customers, to ensure that operators adhere to stipulated guidelines set by the CBN.

“The Bank thus, maintains its resolve to continue to restructure the foreign exchange market and will pursue all recent policies targeted at sanitizing the market to improve transparency and proper functioning to eliminate illegal foreign exchange dealers in the economy.”
