The data obtained by Financial Business shows that the country’s reserves dropped from about $45.509billion to $45.228billion just last week.
Comparatively, this shows that the nation’s external reserves recorded revenue decline of about $281million from the figures above.
In the same vein, the country’s currency-Naira also experienced a slight depreciation, as the exchange rate at the parallel market increased from N362 per Dollar to about N363 per Dollar, showing a marginal increase in the exchange rate between Naria and Dollar.
