Nigeria’s main stock index surged almost 3 percent to an 18-week high on Thursday, with investors snapping up shares after a peaceful presidential election in Africa’s biggest economy won by opposition leader Muhammadu Buhari.

The index which has risen for 10 straight sessions, has erased all its losses so far this year, as relief that the elections avoided the violence of previous polls, reports Reuters.
