Fiscal Balance in Nigeria

Nigeria Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Nigeria - Fiscal Balance

The coronavirus pandemic, lockdown measures put in place in major economic hubs, and depressed global crude prices have completely derailed the economy’s already-fragile recovery from its 2016 recession. On the heels of the oil price crash in March, the private sector PMI plunged to a survey record low in April as evaporated demand crushed output and new orders. Notably, disruptions to supply chains and tighter FX liquidity are also likely to stoke inflationary pressures. This, coupled with authorities’ indication of abiding to the OPEC+ agreement struck in April to cut output in May and June, will be pummeling the economy in Q2. In a bid to ease the economic pain, authorities started to gradually lift the lockdown in early May. Although this should enable an improvement in activity in the vast informal sector, possible retightening due to continued health concerns could exacerbate the economic impact.
