Nigeria: Inflation falls to lowest level since January 2016

Consumer prices rose 1.13% on a month-on-month basis in July, below June’s 1.24%. The result marked the first month of declining price pressures since February and was driven by a softer increase in food prices.

Inflation came in at 11.1% in July, inching down from 11.2% in June and marking the lowest level since January 2016. Although Inflation has fallen for 18 consecutive months, it is still well above the Central Bank’s target range of 6.0%–9.0%.
