The National Bureau of Statistics recently made available Inflation figures for September 2017, and as earlier expected core inflation maintained its downward trend while core inflation dipped from 12.3% to 12.2%. Regardless, food inflation came in contrary to our expectations. Our forecast suggested food inflation will sustain a downward trend due to the ushering in of the harvest season, however the actuals showed that persistent push factors such as energy prices and transportation was responsible for the reversal of food inflation. Obviously it reflects the difficulty faced by ex-ante in the face of push factors. Moreover it also underlines the reluctance of food prices to fall, as it remains largely rigid to the upside.
Month on month inflation fell from 0.97% to 0.78%, such dip is a product of persistent emasculation of money supply. Headline inflation dip slightly from 16.1% to 15.98% in the month of August, evidently food inflation remain an up risk to the 15% target for 2017.

In the week ahead, the Debt Management Office will re-open both the 5 year and 10 year instrument, issuing each instrument at N5o billion each. Certainly given the maturity of each instrument, they provide limited room to replenish cash. Regardless we do not see any substantial change to the hummed yield curve.
