Nigeria faces a new bout of economic uncertainty arising from a combination of a fall in global oil prices and the shutdown of much of its productive capacity as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Africa’s largest economy is in need of significant reform if it is to rise to the task of weathering these economic challenges. Joining Ikemesit Effiong, Head of Research at Africa-focused risk consultancy, SBM Intelligence to assess the implication for growing the non-oil component of the economy, including mining, agriculture, retail, supply chains, and the country’s precarious federal political system as well as the importance of wider political and economic reform are Kelechi Ekugo, Chief of Staff at the Nigerian Ministry of Solid Minerals and Steel Development; Chris Newsom, Programs Advisor at the Stakeholder Democracy Network; Titilope Ojo, Exporters Voice Lead, Trade Policy Workstream PDF-Bridge of the UK Department of International Development, Cheta Nwanze, Lead Partner at SBM Intelligence and Tunde Ajileye, Partner at SBM Intelligence.
