The naira continued on the path of recovery on the black market today as it closed at N450 to the dollar.
This development was once more attributed to the appointment of Travelex and FirstBank Nigeria Limited as the only two institutions responsible for the sale of the greenback to the Bureau De Change (BDC) sub-sector of the economy.
The President of the Association oof Bureau De Change of Nigeria (ABCON), Alhaji Aminu Gwadabe, welcomed the move by the central bank, saying it would help strengthen the naira and improve dollar liquidity in the market.
“It will ensure that more dollar are distributed to BDCs in uniform and transparent manner as some of the banks have not been selling funds from the international money transfer operators (IMTOs).
“If you check, since Travelex started selling to BDCs, speculation has reduced in the market and the naira is on the path of recovery. My advise to our members is to partner with the central bank on this project. I advice everybody to be patriotic, any member that goes against the rule would be punished,” Gwadabe had said.
Travelex, a global foreign exchange company, last week began weekly disbursements of US$15,000 (part of the country’s diaspora remittances) to each of the 3,000 registered Bureaux DeBDC) operators in the country.
Travelex was officially directed by the CBN to distribute FX to BDC operators following complaints from BDCs of low supply from the banks.
