Nigeria: Economic Dashboard @ 091118
From the Editor’s Desk
Source: Afrinvest Weekly Update
We believe implementation of the minimum wage will suffer across States, although the FG should be able to fully fund its own obligation. In the private sector, we also expect implementation to suffer considering the fragile state of the economy. Indeed, there is no urgency for private employers in the informal sector to boost wages given surplus labour. Thus, we do not expect the wage increase to have a strong pass-through to inflation.
However, there are a number of options available to FG and States to assuage the impact of the wage increase. First, the increase can be fully implemented for those at lower cadres while a marginal increase or a wage freeze can be considered for those at the top cadres. This means that there would only be a modest increase in the overall wage bill. Secondly, the FG and States can remove subsidies on petrol to increase FAAC allocations.
Lastly, and also related to the previous option, the CBN can align its exchange rates to market at N360/US$1 to boost government revenues from oil exports. We estimate that over N1.6tn in revenues can be collected due to the last two options alone. Ultimately, we believe only a better grip on running costs and increased collection of revenues will lead to a sustainable fiscal position for governments.
