About the black Market exchange rate in Nigeria

A black market exchange often called parallel system is one in which transactions take place at more than one exchange rate and at least one of the prevailing rates is a freely floating, market-determined.

Black market exchange rate systems may be legal or illegal. When the parallel market for foreign exchange is legal, it is often referred to as a dual exchange rate (DER) system. In these cases, most current account transactions take place at a pegged commercial rate, and capital account transactions at a market-determined financial rate.

Illegal parallel market systems emerge when private agents attempt to evade restrictions on the price or quantity of foreign exchange transactions. Illegal parallel markets are the norm in most of Africa especially Nigeria, which has never successfully unified its exchange rate.

Black market exchange is a platform where currencies are brought and sold. These markets are guided by a central authority but there is always an agreement between the seller and buyer. This agreement is usually based on the volume of money been sold or bought. In essence, the black market is a free market, regulated only by supply and demand.

 

Local black market operation in Nigeria

The physical black market is not a place you rush in and rush out. You must be careful. You should go there with someone familiar with how they operate. Make sure you visit a bureau de exchange who has an office. Ensure you have written down the serial number of your Canadian dollar notes (if it’s just a few notes). To avoid the word… “This is fake” I have heard complaints from people who took original Canadian dollar note and ended been fake after it was checked by the exchangers.

In Nigeria, the Hausas had been the major players in black market currencies exchange. Even banks with FX issues usually advise customers to visit the bureau de exchange. How do they make money?

In the black market currency exchange, they buy from at a cheaper rate. For example, the Canadian dollar is pegged at 272 Naira to 1 Canadian dollar. At the black market, if you’re selling your 1 Canadian dollar to get naira today, the abokis would buy from you at a lower price. Let say they buy at 1 Canadian dollar CAD for 357 NGN Naira as opposed to 360 and sell for 362.

But why is Canadian dollars is higher than Naira today?

Canadian dollars is higher than Naira today because the Nigeria’s economy operates one commodity-based economy, which is oil, a major source of her foreign currency. In the short-range, Nigeria is obsessed with easy money of oil trading and outrightly rejects the growing diversifications of her economy she initiated. A great nation like Nigeria has refused to grow her economy with all the natural and human capital at her disposal.
