The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) has disclosed that during the first half of 2023 the cement sales dropped by a substantial 30 percent. The Association attributed the decline to the government’s replacement of the Naira with a new central bank digital currency. The MAN also noted that the absence of cash access during this time frame resulted in a 20 percent decline in consumer goods sales.
