Customs new exchange rate According to data from the federal government trading portal, Nigerian importers will be charged N1164.843 per dollar for import duty. The new rate represents a 1.27% reduction from the previous rate of N1,150.16 per dollar. With the apex bank’s policy that Customs should be using the rate on the date of submitting Form M for calculating duties, the adjustment means that importers opening Form M on Monday, April 29, 2024, for any import trade, will have to look for more money to pay as import duties compared to the importer who opened Form M on Friday, April 26, 2024.

On Friday, April 26, 2024, the naira exchanged to the dollar at N1,339.23/$1 in the official market at the Nigerian Autonomous Foreign Exchange Market (NAFEM).
