He said the Small and Medium Enterprises segment was boosted with 55 million dollars, adding that those requiring foreign exchange for tuition fees, medical payments and Basic Travel Allowance among others, received 55 million dollars.

Okorafor reassured the public that the bank would continue to intervene in the interbank Foreign Exchange Market, in line with its desire to sustain liquidity in the market and maintain stability.

Meanwhile, the naira continued its stability in the Foreign Exchange Market, exchanging at an average of N361 to a dollar in the Bureau De Change segment of the market in Abuja.
