Cardoso Speaks On CBN Increasing Capital Base Of Banks

Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Olayemi Cardoso projects that the country’s inflation will drop to  21.4 per cent in 2024.

Naija News reports that Cardoso made the projection while delivering his keynote address at the macroeconomic forecast report for 2024 presented by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group.

He asserts that the government would combat inflation, which reached 28.9% in December, with the aid of inflation targeting. He hinted that lower rates might eventually impact businesses.

He said, “Inflationary pressures are expected to decline in 2024 due to the CBN’s inflation-targeting policy, which aims to rein in inflation to 21.4 per cent.”

“The outlook for decreasing inflation in 2024 will have a profound impact on businesses, providing a more predictable cost environment and potentially leading to lower policy rates, stimulating investment, fueling growth, and creating job opportunities.”
