Although the dollar to naira exchange rate opened in the parallel market at 605 for $1 today, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) does not recognize the parallel market, also known as the black market. As a result, anyone in need of currency should contact their bank, with the I&E window being the only known exchange, according to the apex bank.

“The only exchange rate remains the I&E window, which is the market we expect everybody who wishes to procure or sell forex to get it,” said the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele.

“I am sorry to say that I do not, and I do not intend to recognize any FX in the market.

“Go to your bank. Even if your limit is above what the bank is selling, put it forward, and we will look into it. If you want to sell the dollar, go to your bank and sell it,” he said during a press briefing on September 17, 2021.

Meanwhile, Touchaheart Nigeria reported that the USD opened this week at 605 in Lagos Nigeria’s Parallel Market, popularly known as the Black Market, on Monday, May 30th, 2022, after opening at 605 last week on Monday, May 23rd, 2022.

Touchaheart Nigeria’s investigations demonstrate market instability, since prices fluctuate unpredictably, making it unreliable.

TOUCHAHEART NIGERIA does not set or determine foreign exchange rates. The official NAFEX rates can be seen on the FMDQOTC’s website. Various sources, including internet media outlets, are used to get parallel market (black market) pricing. The rates at which you purchase or sell FX may differ from those described in this article.
