The issues of MSME development and job creation are key in the present administration?s economic development efforts. This is one way of delivering the dividends of democracy and thereby stemming the tide of restiveness and insecurity in the nation. In realizing this, the Government has been trying to establish structures to ensure that the business environment is conducive for the private sector to thrive and create jobs.

Specifically, prices of the selected 24 food items ranged from N47.42 N1, 812 in January to N42.90 N1, 955.10 in February 2017. Average price of all selected items increased month-on-month by 2.7 percent to N540.05.
