CBN Retains Interest Rate at 11.5%


The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Friday resolved to retain Monetary Policy Rate (MPR), otherwise known as interest rate, at 11.5 percent and the asymmetric corridor of +100/-700 basis points around the MPR.

The apex bank also left the Cash Reserve Ratio at 27.5 percent and Liquidity Ratio at 30 percent.
