The Central Bank of Nigeria’s Monetary Policy Committee has jacked up benchmark interest to 13 per cent, 150 basis points above the previous rate.

It is the first change since September 2020.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday after the committee’s142nd and third meeting for the year at the CBN headquarters in Abuja, CBN, Emefiele said the action was to tame the rising inflation rate in the country.

He said the committee voted to maintain the CRR at 27 percent and the Liquidity Ratio at 30 percent while the asymmetric corridor of +200 and -700 basis points around the MPR was also adopted.

He was concern that the impact of the CBN development finance initiatives was being threatened by an astronomic rise in inflation rate and explained that the MPC was faced with the dilemma of managing two parallel trends at the same time.

The CBN governor, however, said the rate on development finance loans will remain at 5 percent till 2023.

“Six members voted to raise the MPR by 150 basis points, four members by 100 basis points and one member, by 50 basis points.

“Members expressed deep concern about the continued uptrend of inflationary pressure in spite of the gradual improvement in output growth.

“Committee notes that the current rise in inflation is inimical to growth and the full recovery of the Nigerian economy,” he said.

The committee urged the federal government to do more to provide a safe and secure environment for economic activities to stimulate growth.

Airline operators to ground activities over high price of JetA1

The Airline Operators of Nigeria, AON, has said it would on Monday suspend operations nationwide.

AON cited increase in price of aviation fuel (JetA1) which cost N700 per litre as reasons to suspend operations Nationwide.

This was contained in a letter by AON President, Abdulmunaf Yunusa Sarina, and sent to the Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika.

The AON President lamented that the increase in price of JetA1 has shut up the country’s cost of operations to over 95 percent, thereby, causing hardship on passengers.

The letter read in part: “It is with a great sense of responsibility and patriotism that the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) have carried on deploying and subsidizing their services to our highly esteemed Nigerian flying public in the last four months despite the steady and astronomical hike in the price of JetA1 and other operating costs.

“Overtime, aviation fuel price (JetA1) has risen from N190 per litre to N700 currently. No airline in the world can absorb this kind of sudden shock from such an astronomical rise over a short period.

“While aviation fuel worldwide is said to cost about 40% of an airline’s operating cost globally, the present hike has shut up Nigeria’s operating cost to about 95%.

“In the face of this, airlines have engaged the Federal Government, the National Assembly, NNPC and Oil Marketers with the view to bringing the cost of JetA1 down which has currently made the unit cost per seat for a one hour flight in Nigeria today to an average of N120,000.

“The latter cannot be fully passed to passengers who are already experiencing a lot of difficulties.

“To this end therefore, the Airline Operators of Nigeria (AON) hereby wishes to regrettably inform the general public that member airlines will discontinue operations nationwide with effect from Monday, May 9, 2022 until further notice.”
