List of Dividends announced so far in 2020 (June)



Dividends announced on the Nigerian stock exchange

As audited accounts start to trickle in, companies will propose dividend payments to their shareholders as recommended by their respective boards of directors. It is also important to track these announcements to know who is eligible to collect the dividend, when it will be approved and when it will be paid. Dividend payment also affects share prices.

This page will be updated from time to time.

Naira weakens against the dollar by 1.14% amid market uncertainty

The reopening of the economy is expected to put additional pressure on the naira as more businesses try to meet up with accumulated obligations.



Central Bank Continues intervention in Forex market to stabilize Naira, Naira to depreciate slightly over $1.52 billion maturing contracts expires, Naira hits N388.84 to $1 at the currency spot market, Investors and Exporters (I&E) window, Naira weakens against the dollar by 1.14% amidst uncertainty

The naira was weakened at the parallel market on Monday, thereby depreciating against the dollar. This is the first depreciation of the naira in about two weeks, after four consecutive rounds of appreciation against the dollar.

According to information obtained from Abokifx, the naira depreciated to N445 to a dollar on Monday, June 2, 2020. This shows a loss of N5 (or 1.14% decline) when compared to the N440 to a dollar that was recorded last week Friday.


The local currency was weakened at the parallel market following the announcement of the resumption of domestic flight operations on June 21, 2020, by the Federal Government. The uncertainty resulting from the delayed resumption of sales of dollars to the Bureau De Change (BDC) operators also contributed.

In a related development, the local currency was stable at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window, having recorded no movement. The naira exchanged at N385.50 to a dollar on Monday, June 2, 2020, which was the same rate it ended with on Friday last week. This came against the backdrop of a marginal increase in the daily turnover to $34.35 million at the I&E window, marking an increase of $2.95 million when compared to the $31.40 million that was recorded the previous trading day. In other words, this represents a 9.4% increase in dollar supply to the window.

Recall that on April 29, 2020, the Central Bank of Nigeria had announced the resumption of weekly sales of $100 million dollars for school fees and the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), in order to help reduce the pressure on the naira in the foreign exchange market. To a large extent, this has helped to reduce pressure on the naira.

However, despite improvement in the price of crude oil around the world and its positive effect on the country’s foreign exchange earnings, the reopening of the economy is expected to put more pressure on the naira as more businesses try to meet up with accumulated obligations.

Market Insights

The lockdown and hike in the cost of transportation triggered increases in the price of food items. This was disclosed by a frozen food trader at Mushin market. She said:

“Due to the hike in transportation, we now sell a full chicken for an average of N1,700 compared to an initial average of N1,400, while 1 kg of Turkey sells for N1,500 compared to N1,300 recorded in March 2020.

She further explained that due to the practice of social distancing, the cost of transportation has increased significantly, hence affecting the prices of many commodities in the market.

On his part, Mr. Ruwa, an onion seller at Mile 12 market, stated that the increase in the price of onions is due to the scarcity of the item which is produced mainly in Northern Nigeria. According to him, the price of onions rose significantly due to the scarcity of dry onions due to the season.
