The exchange rate between the naira to dollar and dollar to naira on Sunday showed that the Nigerian official currency, Naira has fallen against the United States dollar weeks after a steady rise which saw it gaining over N25 since it fell to its lowest of N575 to a dollar on September 20, 2021.

The naira lost value at a whooping N85 to the dollar in less than two months from N490/$1 to N575/$1 on September 20.
