  4. The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) issued a major directive allowing banks to sell dollars at any rate in the Investor and Exporters’ Window of the foreign exchange market.

  8. Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the presidential election, submitted new evidence to the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).
