At the back of the table, Cornerstone, Dangote Cement, Japaul Gold, Sovereign Insurance and Stanbic filled out the top five losers table.

The main sector indices closed in the same direction as the ASI, except for the NGX Banking and NGX Insurance sectors which gained 0.60% and 0.24% respectively, while the NGX Growth and NGX ASEM sectors gained firm.

Market activity, measured by both trade volume and value, declined during the session, with daily traded volume standing at 140.610 million units, down 32.14% from compared to the volume of 207.196 million units traded in the previous session.

The value of these traded shares fell slightly by 24.50% during the session to 1.600 billion naira from a value of 2.119 billion naira recorded in the previous trading session.
