Inflation rate: Monetary policies yielding desired results, says CBN
The Central Bank of Nigeria has said its monetary policy reforms have started reflecting positively on the country’s economy.
The apex bank’s Director, Corporate Communications Department, Isa AbdulMumin, said this while speaking in Abuja on the latest inflation rate released by National Bureau of Statistics figures on Wednesday.
The bureau disclosed that the country’s inflation rate surged to 27.33 per cent in October, a 0.61 per cent point from the 26.72 per cent that was recorded in September.
But AbdulMumin said the current inflation rate released by the NBS indicated that the money market reforms by the apex bank are gradually affecting the economy.
