Country Brief - Nigeria 2017

The IMF and World Bank predict that Nigeria will come out of recession in 2017 as oil prices continue to recover, though challenges remain in terms of inflation, currency weakness and the sheer size of the budget deficit. Other difficulties such as poverty, inequity, corruption and security, as well as the humanitarian crisis in the north, present ongoing challenges, and the country’s prospects hinge on its ability to maintain political stability. Nevertheless, Nigeria has the potential for long-term prosperity and the chance to benefit from its demographic dividend. Quality concerns in its under-resourced education sector provide opportunities for private providers and fuel aspirations among its affluent population and wealthy middle classes to send their children to study overseas.
