Massive Worldwide Jubilation!!! Nigerians Can Now Eat 3-Square Meals A Day, As Buhari Breaks 29-Years Hunger Record

The National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, who declared Nigeria’s worst recession in 29 years, has on Tuesday, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari, has put Nigeria out of recession.

According to the Nigerian Gross Domestic Product GDP, report released by the NBS, the economy recorded a positive growth after five consecutive quarters of contractions, since Q1 2016.

The 0.55% growth recorded is 2.04% higher than the rate recorded in the corresponding quarter of 2016, where a contraction of -1.49% was recorded. Quarter-on-quarter, real GDP growth was 3.23%.

The oil sector was estimated to have averaged at 1.84 million barrels per day, which is 0.15 million barrels higher than the daily average production recorded in the first quarter of June.

The non-oil sector, which was driven by Agriculture, finance & insurance, electricity, gas, steam and air-conditioning supply, and other services, grew by 0.45% in real terms.

This is 0.83% higher than the rate recorded in second quarter 2016 and -0.28% lower than the rate recorded in first quarter of 2017.

Yemi Kale, a Statistician General, had told Bloomberg in an interview, that there was a likelihood that the economy exited recession in June 2017, but he was not sure, because all the numbers had not been collated.

“Intutively, we might be getting out of recession in the second quarter, but I can’t say until all the numbers are in.

“If it doesn’t happen in the second quarter, it will be a much reduced negative, and it will definitely happen in the third quarter, unless we have a new round of shocks in the later weeks.”
