CBN denies naira devaluation

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has denied it devalued the naira. Acting Director, Corporate Communication, Dr. Isa AbdulMumin stated this in a statement titled, “CBN Has Not Devalued the Naira”.

He said: “The attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been drawn to a news report… titled “CBN Devalues Naira To 630/31”.

“We wish to state categorically that this news report, which in the imagination of the newspaper is exclusive, is replete with outright FALSEHOODS and destabilizing innuendos, reflecting potentially willful ignorance of the said medium as to the workings of the Nigerian Foreign Exchange Market.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the exchange rate at the Investors’ & Exporters’ (I&E) window traded this morning (June 1, 2023) at N465/US$1 and has been stable around this rate for a while.

The bank advised the public to ignore the news report in its entirety, saying it’s speculative and calculated at causing panic in the market.
