Fitch Ratings, an international rating agency, has predicted that Nigeria’s economy will grow in 2018 by 2.6 per cent.
The rating agency said that the country is not expected to experience another economic recession this year
The United Kingdom-based rating agency’s projection is a bit higher than the 2.1 per cent growth projected by the International Monetary Fund, IMF and the World Bank’s projection of 1 per cent growth in 2018.
The spokesperson for Fitch, Peter Fitzpatrick said the recovery will be driven mainly by increased foreign exchange availability to the non-oil economy and fiscal stimulus.
