“The naira redesign and the security surveillance of the financial system have stemmed the volatile demand pressure in the parallel market. This explains the stability witnessed at the retail end of the parallel market,” Mr Gwadabe said.

The ABCON chief added that the naira had traded within a stable band of N750 to $1 since the introduction of the policy to date. He said the exchange rate had remained stable in the face of the shortage of supply of the dollar in the market.
