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 percent.

According to World Bank and NBS figures monitored by Ejes Gist Media, this is also the second recession under President Muhamadu Buhari’s democratic reign — and his fourth as head of state.
