Lady goes to BDC shop to change dollars

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a Nigerian lady shared her experience at the bank where she had gone to exchange her US dollars.

In the video, she expressed her inability to secure a favourable rate at the Bureau De Change (BDC) shop, leading to her decision to visit the bank for the currency exchange.

The lady, who went to the bank with her brother, said while waiting on the queue, she noticed a man behind her, armed with bundles of dollars ready for exchange.

There is also a story of a lady explaining the reason for the rise of the dollar in previous weeks.
