Nigerian currency on Tuesday recorded an increase in value against foreign currencies at two official windows on resumption of trading after the democracy day holiday.
Data obtained from FMDQ securities where Naira is officially traded showed that the currency at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window of the foreign exchange market closed at N420.75 to a dollar.
This indicates a N0.5 or 0.11 per cent appreciation when compared to N421.25 it exchanged on Friday, June 10.
