Speaking at the weekend, the Acting Director, Corporate Communications Department, CBN, Isaac Okorafor, confirmed the plan to inject more foreign exchange into the forex market in the weeks ahead.

He, therefore, urged customers to report any erring bank to the CBN for investigation and appropriate sanction.

Specifically, while the banks had earlier made bids worth $91 million, CBN on its part offered $100 million and the lenders ended up picking $81.35 million, leaving about $18 million for the apex bank.
