Nigeria Economic Update (Issue 2)

Inflation rate rose slightly to 9.4 percent in
November 2015 from 9.3 percent in the previous month. This rise is attributed
to price increase in Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages, and Transportation costs
which extends from shortages of petrol across the country. The food
sub-index grew by 0.2 percentage points to 10. 1 percent while, the Core sub-index
declined by 0.2 percentage points to 8.7 percent within the period. The
inflationary up-tick points to the need to curtail the rising food prices by
increasing the supply of petrol in the country.
