The Naira on Monday appreciated further at the parallel market in Lagos, exchanging at N358 to the dollar, stronger than N359 it traded on Friday.

The Pound Sterling and the Euro traded at N472 and N411, respectively.

At the investors’ window, the currency exchanged at N362.58 to the dollar, while market turnover stood at 225.6 million dollars.

Meanwhile, Aminu Gwadabe, President, Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON), has attributed the currency’s gains to the annual “Chinese holidays and the national elections’’.

”The closure of factories in China and the low demand for dollars has contributed to the gains of the naira at the parallel market,” Mr Gwadabe said.
