Nigeria - Inflation (end of period)
Inflation falls to one-year low in July
Consumer prices rose 1.01% on a month-on-month basis in July, down marginally from June’s 1.07% climb. The moderation was chiefly driven by softer price increases for food.
Inflation inched down from 11.2% in June to 11.1% in July, marking a one-year low. That said, it remains well above the Central Bank’s target range of 6.0%–9.0%.
Meanwhile, core consumer prices, which exclude volatile agricultural produce, rose 0.77% month-on-month in July, below June’s 0.85% increase. Core inflation held steady at an over three-year low of 8.8% in July.
FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect inflation to average 11.4% in 2019, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. In 2020, inflation is seen averaging 11.2%.
