[Webinar] United States of Naira: What Price For Unification?

Nigeria’s central bank has begun the journey from multiple official and unofficial exchange rates to a single unified value. It’s a radical departure that the IMF and investors have long advocated.

But how much difference will a unified rate make to foreign investment, international trade and borrowing costs? And how much further does the official rate need to fall to match the unofficial level?

Watch our webinar below for a captivating conversation with our panel of experts:
His Highness Muhammad Sanusi II, 14th Emir of Kano & former Governor of the Nigerian Central Bank
Temitope Popoola, CEO, Renaissance Capital
Nkemdilim Nwadialor, Equity Research Analyst, Tellimer
Oghenefejiro Eduviere, FX Trader, AZA
