Nigeria’s economy has officially slid into its worst economic recession in over three decades.
This is according to the gross domestic product numbers released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Saturday.
According to NBS, Nigeria recorded a contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.
This is the second consecutive quarterly GDP decline since the recession of 2016.
The cumulative GDP for the first nine months of 2020, therefore, stood at -2.48 percent.
The last time Nigeria recorded such cumulative GDP was in 1987 when GDP declined by 10.8 per cent.
According to World Bank and NBS figures, this is also the second recession under President Muhamadu Buhari’s democratic reign — and his fourth as head of state.
