The dollar at the parallel exchange market on Tueday plummeted to between N805 to N790.
This comes after the meeting between the acting CBN governor, Folashodun Shonubi and President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the exchange rate of naira.
According to Daily Trust, the dollar started a steady decline from N925 to N930 that it was exchanged in the morning till around 4:00 pm when news about a possible Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) intervention filtered through to the Bureau De Change (BDC) operators.
Recall that the CBN announced plans to take critical decisions to reverse the slide of the naira in the next few days, thereby resulting in significant losses to the speculators.
At Allen Avenue and Gbagada in Lagos, BDCs were said to be buying at N900 and selling at N910, after touching N970 to the dollar earlier in the day.
At the Wapa forex market in Kano, the BDCs are buying at N875 and selling at N905 to the dollar.
Further checks at Zone 4 BDCs market in Abuja revealed how the money speculators in the area were taken unawares by the development.
However, at the Investors and Exporters window, the dollar opened at N789/$, got to a high of N799/$ and a low of N740/$ and eventually closed at N774/4, N10 higher than the N764/$ it closed the previous day.
