Why CBN New Investors Rate Will Fail - Analysts


Nigeria has thrown Naira open for investors but it may still struggle to attract dollars unless it scraps its system or multiple exchange rates, analysts told Nasdaq.com.

The Central Bank of Nigeria said on Monday it would allow investors to trade the naira at rates determined by the market - a move intended to improve the supply of dollars, but one that introduced yet another exchange rate.

Nigeria already had five rates: the official rate, the black market, a rate for Muslim pilgrims going to Saudi Arabia, a retail rate set by licensed exchange bureaus and a rate for foreign school fees. The naira eased 18.3 percent to 374.25 to the dollar for investors on Tuesday compared with the official interbank rate of 305.90 and black market rate of 385.
