The Naira exchanged at N360 to the dollar at the parallel market in Lagos, while the Pound Sterling and the Euro traded at N476 and N398 respectively.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the future of the Naira had been the focus of debate with economists postulating on its possible devaluation in 2020.

However, the CBN in it’s first Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) in 2020 said that Naira devaluation was the way to go.

CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, noted that the bank has sufficient foreign reserve to defend the Naira without choosing the option of devaluation.
