Nigeria Inflation September 2022

Nigeria: Inflation surges to 17-year high in September

Inflation rose to 20.8% in September from 20.5% in August. This marked the highest print since September 2005 and was driven by greater price pressures for food and non-alcoholic beverages, housing, water, electricity and gas, and clothing and footwear. Furthermore, continued currency weakening also pushed up inflation through greater import costs.

Meanwhile, the trend pointed up as annual average inflation rose to 17.4% in September from 17.1% in August. Core inflation, which excludes volatile agricultural produce, increased to 17.6% in September from 17.2% in August.

Lastly, consumer prices rose 1.36% month on month in September, down from 1.77% in August.
