Speaking with newsmen, industry experts including the Chief Executive Officer, Financial Derivatives Company Limited, Bismarck Rewane said the confidence of prospective investors are not very steady.

On February 20th, the Central Bank of Nigeria said it would provide funding to banks so they can meet the need of Nigerians for both personal and business travels, school fees and medical need.

However the weekly sales of foreign exchange to from CBN to banks has helped the spread between the official and parallel exchange rates but pressure still remain on the naira.
