Why Does the Exchange Rate Matter?

The exchange rate directly impacts the value of your Naira. A stronger dollar means you get more Naira when you exchange, making imports cheaper. However, a weaker Naira can make exporting Nigerian goods more attractive.

The CBN Rate vs. Reality

The CBN publishes an official exchange rate, but this rate often doesn't reflect the true market value. This is where the NAFEX rate comes in. It's a more market-driven rate determined by supply and demand.
