SocialMediaTrends: Soludo’s comments on Obi’s Anambra investments & other stories

Nigerians woke up to the news of the naira rebounding by 20.8 percent to 720/dollar at the parallel market.

Recall that last week, the naira dropped as low as N880 per dollar in the street markets.

The deteriorating situation peaked at N900 per dollar as some dealers quoted.

The development was met with mixed reactions as some recorded losses because they had bought the dollar at about N800 but now have no choice but to sell for a lower amount.

However, some were happy as it showed the naira showed more purchasing power.

International Breweries (IB) Plc, a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), is a multinational drink and brewing giant based in Leuven, Belgium.
