Following a rollercoaster ride in recent trading sessions, the NGX market capitalization witnessed a surge, soaring by N390 billion to reach N54.71 trillion by the session’s close.

The notable upswing comes in the wake of a previous day’s downturn, which saw a staggering loss of N700 billion in response to MPC outcomes. Investors, however, seem to be recalibrating their strategies, finding appeal in stocks that had experienced sell-offs.
