ABCON President, Alhaji Aminu Gwadabe said that recent development in the FOREX market had made it important for the CBN to review the rate at which it sells FOREX to BDCs.

Gwadabe explained that a fair playing ground for all operators at the FOREX market was needed for the CBN to achieve its goal for rate convergence at the market.
