inflation was expected to plateau at 8.4%. Although economic growth has blossomed, poverty and unemployment still loom – the unemployment rate was at a staggering 23.9% in 2013 with roughly two thirds of the Nigerian population living under one dollar per day. The government has since promised that they will create jobs for the youth, which has not been going well so far. Figure 4: Shows Nigeria’s GDP growth trend Source: http://www.tradingeconomics.com/nigeria/gdp-growth-annual As already alluded to earlier in our discussion, Nigeria’s main challenges are infrastructure, little economic freedom, corruption and overdependence on the oil and gas sector. These problems are prioritised by the Nigerian government which urges the private sector to get involved in developing infrastructure to help build the non oil sector. Diversification from the oil and gas sector is therefore, very key to the government. According to the African Development Bank (ADB), Nigeria and fellow African nations have undergone changes in public financial management in order to efficiently allocate resources. However this is not easily achieved as another problem that Nigeria suffers from is high levels of corruption. The Nigerian government tries to address this issue by creating economic crime organisations. The country has lived up to its promise of trying to reach its four main Millennium Development Goals and these are, achieving primary education for all, promoting gender equality, reducing extreme poverty and hunger and lowering child mortality rates. As a result of slowed oil production and a battered global economy, Nigeria’s GDP has not grown at heights that are expected of it, with the nation dropping from 6.63% to 5.89% growth rate in 2014-15. Agriculture is a big player in Nigeria’s economy accounting for roughly 40% of the country’s GDP. With low tax rates, oil and gas account for about 80% of tax received and about 25% of the country’s GDP. Whilst all other sectors only accounting for 20% of tax and 65% of GDP. Such over reliance on the oil and gas sector makes it difficult to plan and grow due to fluctuating oil prices. >GET ANSWER
