U.S to pressurize Nigeria to devalue Naira

The United States intends to pressurize Nigeria to adopt a more flexible foreign exchange policy.

This is to boost U.S investment in the Nigerian economy, Secretary of State for Africa, according to Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who divulged this to the audience at the U.S. Institute of Peace.

She says Nigeria should ensure the value of the naira currency versus the U.S. dollar was “more realistic.”
