Notably, the foreign exchange rates in both the official and parallel markets converged on Tuesday, just a week after the government implemented a policy to unify the exchange rate windows. This convergence signifies a significant step forward in harmonizing the rates across different markets.

Bureau de Change (BDC) operators reported that the local currency was traded between N754 and N757 against the greenback in the parallel market. This range indicates relative stability and reduced volatility in the parallel market, which is encouraging for businesses and investors alike.
