Wusu added that the market liquidity would increase if the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) current foreign exchange policy drive was able to attract foreign participation in the market.

He said that the bullish resurgence witnessed so far was due to the release of impressive first quarter results by major companies, especially the tier one banks.
