Do we really have 3 different exchange rates in Nigeria?

Do we really have 3 different exchange rates in Nigeria?

I carried out some payments this morning and realized that something was wrong with the exchange rate considering what was actually taken from the account.

A $220.00 payment led to N62,452.59 being taken out of the account which comes to about N283.88/$1.

Where is this coming from considering the fact that we are only aware of the official bank rate and black market rate?

N199/1$ – official bank rate
N265/1$ – black market rate
N284/1$ – UBA rate based on payment I just effected this morning

Is this a UBA problem or is it common practice with all the commercial banks in Nigeria?

Why should UBA be charging customers far more than both the official and black market rates?

Customers should be informed and educated concerning any hidden charges or unstated exchange rates that would affect their transactions otherwise we may be talking about criminal deduction of funds from customers accounts.

Should the man out there on the street be the person to pay for the government economic policies that may be affecting the banks negatively? I think not!!!

You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. [...] We must dare to invent the future....Thomas Sankara
