CBN raises interest rate to 18.5 per cent amid rising inflation

The Central Bank of Nigeria’s Monetary Policy Committee MPC has further increased the interest rate by 18.5 per cent to 20.5 per cent from 18 per cent in March. Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of Central Nigeria, disclosed this on Wednesday during the MPC communique presentation and Analysis. He explained that the decision is to curtail the rising inflation in Nigeria. “Our actions to increase the MPR rates are potent because the inflationary pressures you see today confronting us are a global phenomenon and this started in 2022”, he stated. In March, the policy-setting committee raised the MPR from 17.5 to 18 per cent in February to tackle inflation. However, despite the continued hike of MPR since last year May, the inflation of Nigeria had increased to 22.22 per cent in April 2023, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. The MPR is the baseline interest rate in an economy on which other interest rates within that economy are built.

Manchester United to launch a £55m bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount

Manchester United are launching a £55million swoop for Chelsea forward Mason Mount. The England international, who missed the final weeks of the season through injury, is a target for Erik ten Hag and the United boss wants a deal wrapped up quickly. Mount is entering the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge with his future under increasing uncertainty. Old Trafford sources have indicated that talks over a move for the 24-year-old are set to commence. United want to pay in the region of £55m for Mount, a price that falls way below Chelsea’s £85m valuation.

In addition to United, Arsenal are also interested in Mount as Mikel Arteta looks to build on his team’s second-placed finish this season. Liverpool are also actively pursuing a deal for Mount as Jurgen Klopp seeks to rebuild his midfield after a difficult season.
