Fiscal Balance in Nigeria

Nigeria Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Nigeria - Fiscal Balance

The already challenging environment has become more difficult in recent weeks. Following a second quarter in which oil output eased according to OPEC statistics, and credit and money supply growth slowed notably, conditions have seemingly deteriorated further in Q3. Lockdown measures remained in place through July, while the security situation worsened in August amid kidnappings by armed bandits and attacks on Muslim travelers by Christian militia, likely due to land rights issues. Furthermore, public sector doctors launched an indefinite strike on 2 August amid dissatisfaction with the government. That said, the private sector PMI rose to an 18-month high in July, suggesting that business activity firmed at the outset of Q3 despite the many challenges. In addition, the country received 4 million Moderna jabs from the U.S. in early August, which should help the vaccination drive.
