Nigeria - Population

Economic growth cooled in the first quarter of the year due to a further deterioration in the key oil sector. This more than offset a strong performance in the services sector leading non-oil sector activity to firm. Second-quarter data paints a mixed picture. Private-sector operating conditions improved at a fractionally slower pace in April–May, while credit growth was also broadly stable in April. That said, inflation rose markedly in the same month. A pickup in core inflation highlights that price pressures are farther-reaching than energy and food price increases. Meanwhile, sectarian violence spread to the country’s relatively safe south-western region. Social tensions and violence could increase going forward, as religious and regional divides are heightening the stakes of the February 2023 presidential elections.
