Aminu Gwadabe had said that the regulatory authority had to review the official selling price of dollars to BDCs to encourage Nigerians in Diaspora, whose remittances was being sold to BDCs.

Mr. Gwadabe, who is the President, Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria, said that the move was to discourage speculators.
