Even though the dollar to naira opened in the parallel market at ₦575 per $1 todayNewsonline reports that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) does not recognise the parallel market, otherwise known as the black market. The apex bank has therefore directed anyone who requires forex to approach their bank, insisting that the I&E window is the only known exchange.

Newsonline Nigeriareports that at the black market, the players bought a dollar for N570 and sold for N575 on Friday, February 11, 2022 after they bought N568 and sold for N572 on Thursday morning, February 10, 2022.

Though the naira has fallen at the black market, it, however, showed strength at the official market, gaining more than N1 naira, from what it traded weeks after the CBN adjusted the dollar to naira exchange rate.

The exchange rate between the Naira and the US dollar according to the data posted on the FMDQ Security Exchange where forex is officially traded showed that the naira opened at ₦415.77 per dollar, but later closed at ₦416.67 per $1 the same day, representing a change of 0.16%.
