Nigeria Keeps Policy Rate at 13.5%
The Central Bank of Nigeria held its monetary policy rate at 13.5 percent during its September meeting, as widely expected, as inflation remains persistently above the Bank's target range of 6-9 percent and economic growth remains sluggish. The bank's governor Godwin Emefiele said at a press conference that tightening rates could constrain growth while loosening it could allow inflation to rise, and that holding rates steady would allow the bank to appraise the impact of current policies, such as changes to the loan to deposit ratios at banks, that comes into force at the end of September, aiming to increase lending and foster growth.

Nigeria Holds Interest Rate Steady at 13.5%
The Central Bank of Nigeria left its benchmark interest rate steady at 13.5% on May 21st 2019, as widely expected, following a surprise 0.5 percentage point cut at the previous meeting.

Six out of the eleven members of the monetary policy committee voted to reduce the current monetary stance. In February 2019, the annual inflation edged down to 11.3% from 11.4% in January, but still above the Bank's target of 6-9%.

Nigeria Holds Key Interest Rate at 14%
The Central Bank of Nigeria decided unanimously to keep the benchmark interest rate steady at 14 percent on January 22nd 2019, as widely expected. The last time policymakers changed rates was in July 2016, when they lifted the monetary rate by 200 bps. The Committee voiced concerns about inflationary pressures in the first half of the year, amid an increase in spending ahead of general elections and disruptions caused by recent flooding. In December, the annual inflation hit a 7-month high of 11.44% from 11.28% in November, well above the Bank’s target of 6.0%–9.0%. The Nigerian economy is projected to expand 2.28% this year, the CBN Governor Emefiele said.
