The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has raised the interest rate from 18 percent to 18.5 percent.

The apex bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, announced the decision yesterday after the policy-setting committee meeting at the CBN headquarters in Abuja.

The development is the third consecutive time the apex bank will be raising the monetary policy rate (MPR) which measures the interest rate.


This is coming a week after the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics revealed that the country’s inflation rate for the month of April hit 22.22% surpassing last month’s rate of 22.04%.
