The parallel exchange rate (black market rate) is always different from the CBN rate. The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Nigerian naira has a significant impact on the Nigerian economy.
As the naira loses value, inflation takes over the economy, which usually impacts the locals. The Central Bank has said that the Nigerian economy needs a major turnaround and has asked Nigerians to work towards this goal such as increasing exports.

Factors influencing exchange rates
Here are some of the causes for the drop in the exchange rate between the dollar and the naira.
Inflation rate: It is well known that inflation has a direct impact on black market exchange rates. If the Nigerian economy can be stabilized and inflation brought under control, the naira will benefit; however, if the naira continues to fall, it may indicate that food and other necessities are becoming more expensive every day.
Interest rate: Interest rates are another tool to watch. If the interest rate at which banks lend money increases, it would hurt the economy, causing it to contract and, as a result, the value of the naira to fall.
Government debt: National debt can affect investor confidence and therefore the flow of funds into the economy. If inflows are high, the Naira exchange rate will rise in favor of the Naira.
Speculators: Speculators often have an impact on the naira-dollar exchange rate. They hoard money in anticipation of a gain, which drives the naira down even further.
Commercial conditions: Favorable trade conditions will lead to an increase in the value of the naira against the dollar, although Nigeria is currently running a trade deficit. Everything comes from China, India and the majority of Asian countries.
