Introduction

The Nigerian economy lapsed into recession in Q2 2016 precipitated by sharply lower oil prices, and without sufficient fiscal buffers following years of inappropriate policies, fiscal leakages and inefficient spending.

This necessitated a number of economic and institutional reforms as well as the implementation of an expansionary fiscal stance. 

The implementation of a number of reforms, including significant spending on critical infrastructure provided the stimulus for the economy to emerge from recession by the endofQ22017. 

The 2018 Budget is designed to Consolidate on the achievements of the 2016 Budget of Change & the 2017 Budget of Recovery & Growth, and advance delivery of the goals of Nigeria’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan(ERGP)2017–2020.
