Addressing journalists at the end of the two-day Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting in Abuja, the CBN Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, said among other things that raising MPR at this time could erode the gains recently achieved in its policy decisions.

The MPR is the rate at which the CBN lends to commercial banks and often determines the cost of borrowing in the economy.
