The federal government has said that it is planning to introduce new rules to the forex market aimed at boosting the value of the naira and stifling the activities of illegal currency trading according to a Bloomberg report quoting a senior government official.

The new rule will include expanding the official market to accept all legitimate transactions and ensuring the “illicit” black market does not get supply.

The Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Fiscal Policy and Tax Reforms, Mr Taiwo Oyedele said, “We think all of that will happen before December, and maybe in a matter of a couple of weeks we will begin to see the results, such that before the end of the calendar year, naira should find its true value, not the one that is being done currently in the parallel market.”

He also explained in an interview that the federal government’s plans include clearing the backlog of foreign exchange demand estimated at almost $7 billion, establishing transparent guidelines in the FX market, and increasing liquidity in the naira forward market.
