Naira Depreciates by N112 Against Dollar in April




In a notable turn of events, the Nigerian Naira experienced a significant depreciation against the US dollar throughout the month of April 2024, according to data from FMDQ. The currency, which began the month trading at N1,278.58 per dollar, concluded the month at N1,390.96 per dollar, marking a substantial loss of N112.38 over the period.

This depreciation equates to a striking 10% decrease in the value of the Naira against the dollar during April. Interestingly, the Naira had initially shown strength by recording a noteworthy 12% gain against the dollar in the first 12 days of the month, further building on its impressive 14% surge observed in March. Consequently, Goldman Sachs had lauded the Naira as the best performing currency during that period.

However, the latter half of April witnessed a reversal in this trend, leading to a notable month-on-month decline in the Naira’s value relative to the dollar. Despite earlier gains, the currency’s overall performance for the month now reflects a significant setback.


In response to these developments, Olayemi Cardoso, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has indicated that the apex bank is actively devising policies to address the instability of the Naira in the forex market. This statement underscores the seriousness with which authorities are approaching the challenge posed by the fluctuating exchange rates.

The fluctuations in the Naira’s value against the dollar not only impact individual consumers and businesses but also carry broader implications for the Nigerian economy as a whole. As stakeholders await further developments and policy interventions from the CBN, attention remains focused on the efforts to stabilize the currency and foster economic resilience.
