The Central Bank of Nigeria has raised the interest rate to 13.5 per cent..



The CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, announced this on Tuesday while addressing the reporters after the Monetary Policy Committee meeting in Abuja.

Justifying the raise, Emefiele said the MPC is suspicious “there might be an aggressive accretion of inflation”.

To prevent the looming inflation, he said, the MPC had to increase the monetary policy rate by 150 basis points.
