Today’s Dollar to Naira Black Market Rate
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has told people who want to buy or sell foreign currency to talk to their banks first because it does not recognize the parallel market (black market).
The black market (parallel) exchange rate is always different from the CBN rate. The rate of exchange between the US dollar and the Nigerian naira has a big effect on the Nigerian economy.
Inflation overtakes the economy as the value of the Naira declines, which typically has an effect on the populace. The Central Bank has called for Nigerians to work toward this objective, such as expanding exports, and has stated that the country’s economy needs a substantial turnaround.
The black market rate for dollars is frequently higher than that of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The CBN Exchange rate is the rate at which you can purchase or sell dollars for Naira on the CBN dollar-to-naira website, cbn.gov.ng.
The dollar-to-naira bank rate is the rate you use when you buy something from a foreign website with your Naira MasterCard or Debit card from a Nigerian bank. These rates are almost always cheaper than those available on the black/parallel market.

Should there be a black market?
Most Nigerians have argued that the existence of black market has caused more harm than good this has made the government to suspended the sale of dollars to Bureau De Change (BDC).
But one thing we must understand is that the black market has been in existence for long and they played a significant role in sourcing and selling of dollars to the ordinary Nigerians. Without them it will be hard to get dollars from the bank.
To fix the problem, the government should make sure that they are properly regulated, that those who don’t follow the rules are taken off the market, and that, if possible, large amounts of money don’t move outside of the banking system. The government must also ensure that refineries are established, set up, or, better yet, privatized, as this will go a long way toward stopping the importation of petroleum products into the country, which has bled the economy for so long. Most of the help for farming should go to the north, and most importantly, farmers need to feel safe enough to go back to their farms.
