Unemployment in Nigeria
Nigeria - UnemploymentThe economic recovery gained a firmer foothold in the second quarter, as growth accelerated notably. The upturn came chiefly on the back of the non-oil sector, with the services sector being the main driver amid the partial easing of social distancing measures. The oil sector, meanwhile, remained downbeat as activity fell at a more pronounced pace. Lower output was the main culprit as prices for the black gold rose. Turning to Q3, conditions appear to have deteriorated somewhat. Although the PMI rose in July, the index fell to a six-month low in August, highlighting waning underlying momentum. Moreover, credit grew at the weakest pace in over two years in July, further pointing to softening private sector activity. Meanwhile, authorities recently joined forces with Cameroon to combat the dire security situation in both countries due to separatism.
