The Nigerian currency, the naira, has recovered some of its lost value at both the official and black market on Thursday.
According to FMDQ securities data, the Naira ended Thursday trading at N445 at the investor’s and exporters’ official window market.
Thursday’s closing rate represents 0.22 per cent or N1 recovery when compared to the N446 to a dollar on Wednesday.
The improvement of Nigerian currency is coming on the back of improved dollar supply at the market as participants in the I&E window transacted $145.89 million on Thursday.
