Osinbajo made this known on Monday during the opening ceremony of the Mid-Term Ministerial Performance Review Retreat held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The vice president asked the apex bank to increase the exchange rate, which in turn motivates investors to bring n foreign exchange into the country.

Osinbajo said: “As for the exchange rate, I think we need to move our rates to be more reflective of the market as possible

“This, in my own respectful view, is the only way to improve supply. We can’t get new dollars into the system when the exchange rate is artificially low. And everyone knows by how much our reserves can grow.

“So I’m convinced that the demand management strategy currently being adopted by the CBN needs a rethink.”
