“Available statistics indicate that Nigeria has become the largest importer of U.S. dollars,” the regulator said yesterday,   explaining that its twice-weekly wholesale foreign exchange auction will be replaced with a retail version requiring dealers to reveal the identity of their buyers.
Corruption in the build-up to Nigeria’s 2015 election is partly responsible for the increase, Governor Lamido Sanusi said at the Central Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee meeting on Tuesday, adding that it is “absolutely wrong” for bureaux de changes to buy hundreds of millions of dollars without accountability.
Politicians in Africa’s top oil exporter often spend heavily on patronage to secure seats or pay off rivals, with at least some of this money acquired through corruption or links to crimes such as oil theft or kidnapping. Transparency International ranks Nigeria 139th out of 174 countries on its corruption perception index.
