In the week ahead the National Bureau of Statistics will make available the inflation figures for November 2017. In October 2017, core inflation rose from 12.12% to 12.4%, as it became less predictable compared to earlier trend. Month on Month inflation has been on a downward trajectory due to the Central Bank’s dynamic sterilization, regardless of the festive period drawing closer. This could reverse earlier downward trend in month on month inflation. Certainly, it will be more of a one time-off. However, Nigeria’s month on month inflation remains on the uptrend compare to many countries in Africa.

Evidently the strong remittances from abroad in the fourth quarter will largely improve foreign exchange supply and in return relax imported inflation a bit. Food inflation will remain a concern as it is largely driven by push factors. However headline inflation is expected to slip, given the transitory nature of legacy goods.
