They also agreed to retain the asymmetric corridor of +100/-700 basis points around the MPR; retain the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) at 27.5 per cent; and retain the Liquidity Ratio at 30 per cent.

the normalisation policy, that is to return to pre pandemic economic era does not pose any threat to Nigeria.
