The Nigeria Exchange has recorded a remarkable bullish run since President Bola Tinubu assumed office on May 29, 2023.
The equity market has responded positively to the implementation of major economic policies by the President, garnering widespread investor confidence.
Notably, the removal of Godwin Emefiele as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the unification of the exchange rate have contributed to the impressive performance of the NGX, resulting in a gain of N1.67 trillion within just four days.
