·         The banking sector fared better during the day’s proceedings with sentiments skewed to the buy side for most companies in the sector. GTBank held steady at N17.70 with fairly matched demand and supply. UBA reversed yesterday’s loss with a 3.4% mark-up, while First Bank inched up marginally with demand outweighing offers at the close of the session.

·         Dangote Cement caved to supply pressure during the session losing 3.8%; CCNN also went south with a 4.8% loss. However, Ashaka Cement and Lafarge Wapco recorded no change at the close of the session, though re-entries at current levels for Lafarge Wapco during trading suggests a switch in sentiments that could lead to future price appreciation
