Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today 27 January 2023(Black Market)

Naira again experienced a decline on Thursday afternoon, falling to N1,450 per dollar in the parallel market.

This represents a decrease of 8.28% or an N120 difference from the N1,330 reported earlier in the morning.

This is according to data culled from currency traders. The Bureau De Change (BDC) operators listed the purchase rate at N1,350 and the approximate selling rate at N1,450, yielding a N100 profit margin.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is ramping up dollar supplies through the BDCs to minimize pressure on the foreign exchange market and lower imported inflation.

On April 23rd, the CBN lowered the foreign exchange rate for dollar distributions to BDCs, offering $10,000 at N1,021 per dollar, which is roughly 21% below the official rate reported by FMDQ. The move was aimed at enhancing liquidity in the unofficial market.
