The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, on Tuesday, injected another $210 million into the foreclosure market in a bid to keep the current stability of the naira.

This is coming after the apex bank injected the same amount last week into the market.

The bank intervened in the wholesale segment of the foreign exchange market, offering the sum of $100 million to dealers in that window and $55 million each in the small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) and invisibles segments to meet the needs of customers.
