CBN Releases Additional $250m For Petroleum Marketers, Airlines, Others

share on:

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has released additional $250m on seven to 30-day forwards for agriculture, airlines, petroleum products and raw materials.

The apex bank’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, who confirmed this in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday said the CBN had also commenced heavy injection of forex into the spot market.

He further said that the apex bank has called for bids for wholesale spot for $100m for Basic/Personal Travel Allowances, medicals and tuition fees.

According to him, this was in addition to the settlement of requests for wholesale spot bids for invisibles like school fees, medicals and personal travel allowance.

The CBN had earlier this week disbursed $20,000 each to the Bureau De Change operators in two tranches of $10,000 each.

This, according to Okorafor, underscores the commitment of the CBN to ensure liquidity in the foreign exchange market.
