CBN boosts forex supply by $170m



The Central Bank of Nigeria on Thursday offered the sum of $100m as wholesale interventions and sold about $70m to meet requests for business and personal travel allowances.

The CBN said the move was in a bid to sustain the tempo of foreign exchange supply to the interbank market and ensure liquidity to enable more bank customers and other business people to overcome the difficulty of obtaining forex for their transactions.



The CBN Acting Director, Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor, said in a statement that the bank remained resolute in ensuring that it supplied enough forex to genuine customers of Deposit Money Banks and increase liquidity in the market.

According to him, the uniqueness of the wholesale forwards is that banks are allowed to use their winnings from auctions to fund matured obligations to meet Letters of Credit remittances, extinguish bills for collection and other forex demands.

He said with the development, importers who had hitherto been using bills for collection would now experience relief instead of having to patronise other more expensive sources.

The CBN had on Tuesday injected another sum of $100m into the interbank foreign exchange market in its resolve to ease the challenge of access to foreign exchange by genuine customers.


Thursday’s injection by the CBN takes the amount so far offered in the interbank forex market within the past few weeks to over $1.2bn for both wholesale and retail interventions.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
