From the Editor’s Desk

On the 27th of August 2017, the National Bureau of Statistics published the nation’s inflation figure for July 2017.  Expectedly, core inflation caved inwards from 12.64% to 12.21%, maintaining the earlier trend of softening in non-volatile items. Holistically, headline inflation slipped marginally by 0.05% from 16.10% t0 16.05%, while food inflation maintained an upward trend as it rose by 0.37% from 19.91 % t0 20.28%. 

Presently, Nigeria is considered to be among the countries with substantially high rate of food inflation behind the likes of South Sudan, Angola and Egypt, within its region. The persistent uptick in the quarterly CPI of urban imported, urban food, rural imported and rural food by 3.3%, 3.9%, 1.9% and 3.6% respectively, shows a trajectory of their individual curves reflecting a correlation. Thus, underlining the reality that factors that drive food inflation are largely push and non-monetary by nature. More importantly, external shocks like drought experienced in other parts of the Sub Saharan region do have an effect on domestic food prices; after all we are not completely food secured as a nation.  Certainly such volatility puts the targeted inflation for 2017 under duress.

On Tuesday, September 4, 2017, the National Bureau of Statistics will publish the second quarter figures of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). We do expect that nominal gross domestic product will maintain a positive trajectory, given the recovery in certain leading indicators such as the exchange rate and the production manufacturing index. Inherently, the rife nature of cost push factors still remain both a friction and an upside risk to real GDP. Conclusively, we are of the opinion that the dynamic adjustment have not fully recovered from hysteresis, as it will need time and some policy recalibration to fully recover.
