MPC retains Monetary Policy Rate at 14%

The Monetary Policy Committee of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Tuesday left the Monetary Policy Rate unchanged at 13.5 per cent.

The CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, announced the decision of the committee at the end of a two-day meeting held at the apex bank’s headquarters in Abuja.

He explained that all the 11 members that attended the meeting agreed to retain the current monetary policy stance.

He said apart from the MPR that was retained at 13.5 per cent, the committee decided to hold the Cash Reserves Ratio at 22.5 per cent.
