The Naira on Monday gained 50k to exchange at N305 to a dollar at the interbank market, the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports.

The Nigerian currency had closed at N305.50 for most part of last week at the interbank market.

However, naira remained stable at the parallel market, closing at N465 to a dollar, while Pound Sterling and Euro exchanged at N565 and N490, respectively.

Trading at the Bureau De Change (BDC) window saw the naira closing at N390 to a dollar, CBN controlled rate, while Pound Sterling and Euro traded at N562 and N500 respectively.

Currency traders said that uneasy calm had prevailed at the market due to its raid by officials of the State Security Service, SSS, in some parts of the country.

In spite of the raid, the naira had remained pretty stable.

Meanwhile, stakeholders expect the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting being held in Abuja to come up with policies that would lead to a greater flexibility of the exchange rate.
