According to recent figures from the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics , the headline inflation stood at 11. 61 per cent as of October .
The Minister of Finance/ Budget /National Planning , Mrs Zainab Ahmed , told State House Correspondents that inflation rose due to hikes in food prices arising from border closure.

The FEC meeting was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari .
However , she stated that the closure of the borders was a temporary measure adopted by the government to protect the economy against trade malpractices by neighbouring countries .
