Public Relations Officer, Deputy Comptroller Timi Bomodi made the clarification in a statement on Wednesday.
 

The spokesman referred to reports which attributed the increase in exchange rate to the NCS.

Bomodi stressed that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had the sole responsibility to do so.

The PRO said the apex bank fixes official rates for calculating duties and other taxes applicable for import and export.
