The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the ABCON President, Aminu Gwadabe had over the weekend, appealed to the apex bank to lower its applicable exchange rate below the ₦1,251 to the dollar it had pegged for BDCs.

Gwadabe complained that ₦1,251 to the dollar had become too expensive for the BDCs. His complaint came on the heels of development in the foreign exchange market where the parallel market rate of ₦1,235 to the dollar became lower than the official rate of ₦1,252 to the dollar.

He said that the BDCs were recording losses.
