The Central Bank of Nigeria has continued its sustenance of foreign exchange liquidity by injecting another $195 million into the inter-bank Foreign Exchange Market, even as the Naira maintains its strength.

The $195 million intervention was made on Monday.

Figures released by the bank show that it offered $100 million to the Wholesale segment, while the Small and Medium Enterprises segment received $50 million. The invisibles segment comprising tuition, medical payments and Basic Travel Allowance (BTA) received $45 million.

The Bank’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department, Mr. Isaac Okorafor said on Monday that the intervention is in line with the CBN’s continual determination to ensure foreign exchange liquidity and satisfy legitimate demand.

Okorafor assured that the bank would continue to intervene in the nation’s foreign exchange market in order to sustain the liquidity in the market and guarantee the international value of the Naira.

Meanwhile, the Naira exchanged at an average of N363/$1 in the BDC segment of the market on Monday, maintaining its stability in the foreign exchange market.
