Naira sells for N390 to a Dollar

The value of the Dollar continued to diminish against the Naira as the Nigerian currency was traded at N390 on Thursday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Naira had also appreciated against the Euro, exchanging at N400 while remaining stable against the Pound Sterling at N465.

The last time the Naira traded between N390 and N400 to the Dollar at the parallel market was in August 2016.
