The unification of the exchange windows has yielded nothing yet except an increased rate with the window still existing. However, the Presidential Committee on Fiscal Policy and Tax Reforms led by Taiwo Oyedele has proposed the introduction of an excise tax on foreign exchange transactions that occur outside the official market.
It is believed that the tax will strife the multiple windows while the official window thrives.
