Factors Affecting Euro to naira exchange rate in Nigeria Today

Oil Money

Collapsing oil prices have heaped pressure on the naira.
Reserves spent
Crude sales account for up to 70% of government revenue and more than 90% of the country's export earnings.
Oil is also the source of most of the country's foreign exchange reserves.
Before the crash in oil prices, Nigeria had nearly $43 billion in reserves. By June 2016, efforts by the central bank to support the naira had pushed the figure below $27 billion.
The central bank said in mid-2016 that it would allow the naira to trade freely. But currency traders report the bank has continued to intervene in the market.

Let it float

Economists say the situation won't be entirely remedied until the government removes currency controls and truly allows the naira to trade freely.
The International Monetary Fund, in its latest report on Nigeria, recommended the government "remove the remaining restrictions and multiple currency practices, thus unifying the foreign exchange market and helping regain investor confidence."
Abdullahi would welcome change. He describes the current system of multiple exchange rates as simply "crazy."

Looting Of Public Fund

For a very long time now, government officials have looted our public fund, and instead of them to invest it in our economy, they instead take it outside the country thereby impacting negatively on our Naira.

High Demand For the Euro

Many Nigerian traders these days prefer to do business transactions in foreign currencies instead of using our naira. This also has a negative effect on its value.

Excessive Importation

Nigeria is a consumer economy, and unless this changes, we would not be able to move forward as regards our foreign exchange, because of its high demand by the traders. Hence, raising its value against our Naira.


Though in the news;
The Naira is set to be given further lift in the forex market with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN’s injection of another $418 million into various segments of the inter-bank Foreign Exchange market on Tuesday.
Hopefully, this will have a positive effect on our Euro to naira exchange rate in black market.
