Nigeria’s most valuable exports include crude petroleum oil (76.5% of its global total), petroleum gas (10.1%), floating structures including vessels (4.2%), base metal flexible tubing (3.9%), miscellaneous oil seeds and oleaginous fruits (0.5%) and cocoa beans (also 0.5%).

For the fairest rates and the highest likelihood of having dollars to sell to you, the Central Bank of Nigeria is the best bet. With locations in over 35 cities, there's probably one near you wherever you are in Abuja.
