US DOLLAR, NAIRA EXCHANGE RATE: ERROR ON GOOGLE STIRS CONTROVERSY

Nigerians are perplexed with the figure discovered on Google Search engine on Friday indicating the exchange rate of US Dollar to Naira as N184.

The Google search shows the Naira is nearly twice as strong as its actual value of N362.
Although, CBN and other exchange platforms haven’t started reflecting the new rates, speculators are wondering if they haven’t been alerted of the change.

Some Nigerians who reacted to the error on social media were disturbed by the grandiose gesture happening hours before the commencement of the presidential and National Assembly elections.

An anonymous source from the tech company who spoke with this medium, however confirmed it was an error.
