Naira traded at 472 per dollar in parallel market - Punch Newspaper by SirBee(m): Wed 29, July, 2020 03:46pm


The naira on Tuesday traded at N472 to a dollar at the parallel market as foreign exchange scarcity persisted.

The exchange rate was N440/$ in the parallel market in June, and operators have continued to demand for the immediate unification of the multiple exchange rates in the country.

The Senior Partner, Regulatory and Technology, Stransact Partners, Eben Joels, said the more worrisome issue was that the gap between the various exchange rates operating in Nigeria created arbitrage opportunities for highly connected individuals.

He is worried that some people did not need to work to make billions of naira because they could simply obtain foreign currency at the official rate and sell on the black market. Joels said, “Some people are cleaning out of this situation. The spread between the black market and the official market is back to about N100 on a dollar.“

It is not that rate that is the issue right now. We need to move to a single unified exchange rate. For all you know, the naira may be underpriced artificially because of the quest to defend the naira.

“Using purchasing power parity, I believe the naira is underpriced and theso-called need to defend the naira by operating several tiers of official exchange rate is part of the systematictheft of national resources going on as we speak.”

Business organisations in the country had expected the naira to depreciate further in the next few months, according to the CBN’s May 2020 Business Expectation Survey Report.“Respondent firms expect the naira to depreciate in the current month, next month, next two months and appreciate in the next six months,” the CBN had stated in the report.
