Nigeria’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will today announce the 6th and final monetary decision of the year. CEO of CFG Advisory, Tilewa Adebajo and Group Head of Corporate Banking at Coronation Merchant Bank, Ademola Adekoya both join CNBC Africa to discuss some issues that could influence the MPC’s decision.
