He called for normalcy in the market as the ongoing speculative behavior is hampering the market operations and stability will come at huge loss to speculators.
The ABCON boss linked the continued fall of the Naira at the parallel market and Investors’ and Exporters’ (I&E) Forex window to currency speculators hoarding dollars to profit from the currency crisis.
He said the perpetrators are creating artificial scarcity of the greenback within market to cause more woes for the local currency.
