In this post, we will be discussing the Naira scarcity in Nigeria today, its impact on the economy, and the latest news from the CBN regarding this issue as of May 15th, 2023. We will also examine the measures being taken to combat the scarcity of Naira and restore stability to the Nigerian economy.

Over 100 apps receive FG’s approval
About 119 of the companies received full approval, and 54 got conditional approval pending when they fulfil other terms and conditions set by the Commission, a Nairametrics report said.
After issuing updates on loan apps in Nigeria, Google will delist the unregistered apps from its . store, asking them to provide approval certification from FCCPC or face removal.
Google had slated January 31, 2023, as the deadline for the apps’ removal before moving it to March 27.
FCCPC clarifies the reason for the approval
According to FCCPC, it drew up the Limited Interim Regulatory/Registration Framework and Guidelines for Digital Lending of 2022 in partnership with the Joint Task Force (JTF) to promote transparency, fairness, and beneficial alternatives to lending opportunities in Nigeria.
The activities of loan apps in Nigeria necessitated FCCPC’s recent action following a proliferation of illegal loan apps in Nigeria, with consumers reporting rights violations and sharp practices, among others.
Findings have shown that interest rates charged by loan apps violate lending ethics. They also involve in the public humiliation of defaulters and engage in privacy violations.

Naira crashes against US dollar as Nigeria’s foreign reserves hit 20-month low


On Thursday, May 11, 2023, the Nigerian naira experienced a depreciation against the US dollar at the unofficial foreign exchange market. This depreciation followed a significant drop in the naira’s value on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, which was attributed to heightened demand for dollars by importers at the parallel market, colloquially known as the black market.

Reports indicate that on Thursday, the naira closed at N746 per dollar on the black market, reflecting a 0.26% decline in value compared to the N744 to a dollar rate it had exchanged on Wednesday.


The Naira also experienced a decline of N6 against the dollar in the peer-to-peer market, a platform many online shoppers and crypto traders use for currency exchange.
The day’s trading ended with the naira closing at N758/$1 compared to its value of N752/$1 the previous day.
