  • The new rate is the lowest in four years, citing CBN’s governor Godwin Emefiele as saying that seven of the 10 members of the monetary policy committee voted for the cut.
  • The cut may have two effects; one, it may further stoke inflation and increase pressure on the naira; two, it could also help boost the economy which is facing pressure from the oil price crash and the coronavirus pandemic.
