Experts say if the trend continues for a long time, recession will begin to ease away.

The Pound Sterling and the Euro closed at N565 and 510, respectively.

At the interbank market, however, the naira depreciated against the dollar, eroding the gains of Friday in that segment. It shed N4.31 to close at N308.81from N304.50 posted on Friday.

Trading at the Bureau De Change window showed that the currency closed at N385 to the dollar, while the Pound Sterling and the Euro traded at N564 and N504, respectively.
