Activities on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) closed on a bullish trend on Friday with the market indices improving further by 1.85 per cent, following investors’ reaction to Dangote Cement plant
commissioning.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the market capitalisation inched N236 billion or 1.85 per cent to close at N13.009 trillion compared with N12.773 trillion achieved on Thursday.

Dangote Cement led the gainers’ table with N10 to close at N240 per share. Mr Ambrose Omordion, the Chief Operating Officer, InvesData Ltd., attributed Dangote Cement gain to investors reaction to the 300
