Nigeria’s dollar reserves have been rising steadily since October 19, when they stood at $23.89 billion. The central bank did not provide any reason for the rise in its reserves, which coincides with a recent rise in crude prices.
Nigeria’s foreign exchange reserves have increased by 12.9 percent since the start of the year but are still far off their peak of $64 billion hit in August 2008.
