Nigeria’s Economy Records $1.5 Billion Inflow in Just One Week Following CBN’s Policy Adjustment


Nigeria’s economy has seen a significant boost with a staggering $1.5 billion influx within a mere week subsequent to the Central Bank of Nigeria’s decision to raise the Monetary Policy Rate (MPR) by 200 basis points to 24.75 percent.


According to Mrs. Hakama Sidi Ali, Acting Director of the Corporate Communications Department at the Bank, this surge serves as a testament to the effectiveness of the CBN’s monetary policy measures. She underscored that meticulous data analysis by the Bank confirms that this surge is a direct outcome of strategic initiatives aimed at stabilizing the foreign exchange market.


Furthermore, the Naira has witnessed notable appreciation in the Autonomous Foreign Exchange market, trading at N1,309/$1 compared to N1,611/$1 in the second week of March 2024, signaling a positive trajectory. Mrs. Ali emphasized that this upward trend reflects the Naira’s resilience and alignment with global currency dynamics.
