Nigerian Stocks started the first trading session cumulatively on a bearish note.
The plunge is partly attributed to falling oil prices at record levels on the basis that Africa’s biggest economy is heavily dependent on crude oil, which contributes around 80% of its export earnings, 50% of FGN revenue, and 30% of banking credit, according to reports seen from World Bank.
That said it’s critical to note, Selling pressure was significantly seen in blue-chip stocks like Mobil, Ecobank as investors began a significant amount of profit-taking across the market spectrum.
