Performance across sectors stayed broadly bearish save for the Telecom sector as the upsurge in the price of AIRTELAFRI (+10.0%) more than offset the decline in MTN Nigeria (-0.3%). The Banking (-2.2%) sector led the laggards, due to declines in Guaranty Trust Bank (-3.0%), ETI (-8.7%), and FBNH (-3.2%).

The Oil & Gas (- 0.7%), Industrial (-0.5%), Insurance (-0.5%), and the Consumer Goods (-0.4%) sector indices all trended southwards. Market breadth was underwhelming, closing at 0.4x as only 8 stocks advanced while 20 declined.
