From the Editor’s Desk 

According to the Central Bank of Nigeria, one-year deposit fell from 10.26% in July   to 9.95% in August 2018, sustaining the earlier downward tilt witnessed across board with regard to short-term rate.  

However, the prime lending in the period under review also dipped from 16.83 in July to 16.65% in August, making it 6 months of consecutive decline in the prime lending rate. 

The maximum lending rate nudged upwards, from 31.09% in July to 31.93% in August, therefore diverging from the earlier downward trajectory. The spread between the maximum lending rate and the deposit rate caved outwards to 27.86% and at the same time underpinning the cash hedging which has led to such wide spread between the maximum lending  rate and  deposit rate.

Net domestic credit shrug off earlier fall in the month of June, to rise from N25.568 trillion to N26.658 in July. Therefore reflective of a 3.25% increase compared to the previous month.


Regardless, the slip in credit to the private sector have hampered the growth in net domestic credit. Certainly, the growing proximity to the election cycle will further embolden headwinds to net domestic credit.
