Experts and researchers at Cordros Securities predict a rate hike following the meeting, stating that the MPC will “prefer smaller rate hikes in the short term.”
In a report, they stated, “Elsewhere, the prospect of global central banks embarking on smaller interest rate hikes could also influence the MPC’s decision to toe the same line amid concerns about the domestic economy.
Thus, we expect the MPC to opt for smaller rate hikes in the short-term, given the build-up of pressures in the local economy and as the risks of over-tightening come to the forefront of policy discussions. Consequently, we expect the committee to increase the MPR further by 50bps – 100bps and retain other policy parameters.”JAMB portal

In our view, the MPC is likely to be concerned about the pressure on the domestic economy, given the slow growth recorded in Q3, 22022, more so that the manufacturing sector posted its first contraction since Q4, 2020.
“Moreover, inflationary pressures remain intact, although the slight ease in December will likely be welcomed among the committee members.”
