Central Bank of Nigeria


External Sector, Nigeria, Second Quarter


Transactions in foreign exchange through the Central Bank of Nigeria resulted in a net inflow of N 189 .3 million during the second quarter of 1987, in contrast with a net outflow of N819.0 million in the preceding quarter. As a result, the level of official reserves moved up from N2,785 .2 million in March toN2,974.5_million at the end of June. The increase notwithstanding, the June-end level of reserves was N629. 7 million lower than the December 1986 level and was adequate to finance only 1.8 months of the foreign exchange obligations at the prevailing rate of disbursements.
