The two facilities are part of the AfDB’s broader efforts to provide countercyclical support to the Nigerian economy at a time of falling commodity prices, which has caused shortages in foreign currency supply and led to unmet demand for trade finance instruments to support Nigeria’s ongoing economic transitions.
