From the presentation presented on October 25, 2018 at the LBS alumni Networking Lunch by Dr. Doyin Salami, Chiar, NESG Economics Faculty and member of faculty, Lagos Business School, which focused on the theme  “2019 Elections And Your Business”.

 

In this second part, we follow up with a look at the build-up to the elections and the impact it will be likely have on the business environment.

 

Critical Issues During and After the Elections

1.       Will there be stability and smooth transition or disruption???

2.      How will key indicators react to the signals communicated by electioneering?

3.      How will the policy conversation be (re-)framed by the elections and their possible outcome?

  • New helmsman at the CBN? Incumbent governor’s tenure expires June 2019, with possibility of renewal
  • New administration [new perspectives] or… 2nd term for incumbent 
  • Signals communicated by first steps – including composition of “core” or “kitchen” cabinet

 

So, How do Macroeconomic Indicators Respond to Electoral Uncertainty?

Projections

·         We see an 8–10% over-valuation of the Naira given the present differential between domestic and US inflation rates

·         However, in our view, exchange rate adjustment is contingent on pressure on the FX reserve holdings

·         We estimate US$34.33bn (Gross FX Reserves) as the threshold below which pressure on the Naira would be difficult for CBN to accommodate
