Last week the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was mopping up naira liquidity to curb speculation on the currency, The Punch reports.
The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) had maintained its tight policy on interest rates to support the currency.
The committee kept the benchmark interest rates on hold at 14 per cent, a level it has retained for over a year to curb inflation and prop up the naira.
The CBN has continued to sustain its intervention in the foreign exchange market.
