The Nigerian stock market has gained N5.183 trillion one year after Alhaji Aliko Dangote returned as the President of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).
Dangote was elected as the NSE president but stopped by the court. He was, however, re-instated by an appellate court June 15, which led to his resumption on June 19, 2012.
Between then and Tuesday the market capitalisation has added N5.183 trillion, growing from N6.712 trillion to N11.895 trillion. Similarly, market capitalisation rose by 76 per cent from 21,028.39 to close at 37,024.72.
