Nigeria’s Recession…

According to NBS data, the Nigerian economy has recorded two consecutive quarters of economic contraction…

In Q1 2016, GDP growth was negative (-0.36%) and recently released Q2 2016 data reflects a larger contraction (-2.06%)

The economic contraction is fairly broad…and includes both oil and non-oil sectors.

The oil sector contracted by 17.48% and non-oil sectors by 0.38%.

Virtually all major economic sectors are in recession…manufacturing, construction, trade, transport, hotels and restaurants, finance and insurance, real estate and government!!!

The only exceptions are agriculture and telecommunications!
