Today’s Official Dollar to Naira Rate
As of August 19, 2023, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has provided the official Dollar to Naira buying and selling rates:
|Buying (NGN)||Central (NGN)||Selling (NGN)|
Note: The CBN does not endorse the parallel market, also known as the black market. If you’re interested in Forex, it’s advisable to contact your bank first. The parallel exchange rate often differs from the CBN rate, and fluctuations can significantly impact Nigeria’s economy.
The Effect of Exchange Rate on Economy
When the Naira’s value goes down, it results in inflation, affecting the country’s residents. Therefore, it is crucial to work towards improving Nigeria’s economy by promoting exports and selling more goods to other countries.
Black Market vs. CBN Rate
The black market rate for dollars is usually higher than the CBN rate. The CBN exchange rate is the official rate for buying or selling dollars for Naira on the CBN website. Conversely, the dollar-to-naira bank rate, used for foreign online purchases with a Naira MasterCard or Debit card from a Nigerian bank, is generally lower than the black market rates.
Currency Exchange Rate
The exchange rate of the US Dollar to the Nigerian Naira also affects other currencies, influencing the cost of importing goods and services into Nigeria.
