After a tumultuous start of the year, with a strike in which approximately N1trillion of output was lost, the Nigerian economy is expected to settle down into a solid growth trajectory.
The IMF is projecting a GDP growth rate of 7.1% in 2012; S&P has revised the outlook to positive from neutral and Fitch had also revised the outlook to positive.
