The rise coincides with a recent rise in the price of crude, which account for the bulk of Nigeria's foreign currency earnings.

Nigeria's reserves are up 11.2 percent from this year but are still far off their peak of $64 billion hit in August 2008. (Reporting by Oludare Mayowa; Writing by Chijioke Ohuocha; editing by John Stonestreet)
