Agenda for Sustainable Economic Transformation Post-COVID-19 in Nigeria

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a debilitating effect on the Nigerian economy. Specifically, the combination of lockdown measures and the global slowdown of economic activities led to the contraction of Nigeria’s GDP by 6.1% in the second quarter of 2020, thus inducing the country’s second recession within five years .
