The official market rate has been slipping below rates on the unofficial parallel market in intra-day trades since the devaluation. The naira was quoted at 1,449.27 naira on the parallel market on Friday.

The official naira exchange rate last week plunged to as low as 1,531 per dollar from 900, well below black market levels, after the market regulator changed its closing rate calculation methodology, in a de facto devaluation.
