Nigeria’s Inflation Declines For 14th Consecutive Month by Truth234(m): 3:44am On Apr 13, 2018
Consumer prices in Africa’s largest economy Nigeria moderated for a 14th consecutive month in March, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) reported on Thursday.

The Consumer Price Index, which measures inflation rate improved to 13.34 percent in the month of March, a 0.99 percent less than the 14.33 percent filed in February. Making it the lowest inflation rate since OPEC and non-OPEC agreed to cap production for the first time in almost a decade in November 2016.

Also, Food gauge that has been on the rise for the most part of 2017 moderated to 16.08 percent year-on-year in March, down from the 17.59 percent recorded in February. The figure shows economic improvements have started filtering through key sectors as more businesses now have access to foreign exchange at an affordable rate.

On a monthly basis, the inflation rate surged 0.83 percent in the month, 0.05 percent higher than the rate recorded in February.

Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria said during the last Monetary Policy Committee meeting held in Abuja that the apex bank left interest rate unchanged at 14 percent to better strengthen the impact of monetary policy on inflation.

The governor argued that adjusting current monetary policy rate may pressure the naira against the U.S. dollar and hurt current progress in consumer prices.

The nation plunged into economic recession for the first time in 25 years in 2016 after global oil glut eroded 70 percent of its foreign revenue.

Inflation has declined for the APC looters. In the "real" Nigerian economy rise in price of goods and services has gone thermonuclear.

Foreign exchange affordable at N365 compared to N190, which Buhari and APC said was unacceptable in 2015?
Inflation continues to grow albeit at a lower rate hence food, fuel etc remain more costly as the pauperisation of Nigerians deteriorates under Buhari and APC.
Buhari is a monumental error of gargantuan proportions that must be corrected in 2019.

Don't tell me you think squandering of over 30billion dollars whilst selling oil at a value never before witnessed is no excuse for the sliding of the Naira.

It would be a travesty if you thought it means nothing.

We have definitely passed the worst stage brought about by the senseless squandering of our resources by GEJ and his gang of looters.

Now is for us to allow PMB put us on the right path and leave behind a very solid economy to a worthy successor.

Good news, but we need the interest rate to be adjusted. The current 14 percent is too high and it won't hurt inflation rate as stated by the CBN, CBN is only using it to attract FDI to fixed income market, while aggressively saving foreign revenue from oil to up foreign reserves (campaign strategy).

In other news, anyone who knows Ambode should tell him that I'm disappointed with his administration.
Trailers and trucks are parked everywhere... You can't move freely with a bike talk more of a car.
Instead of building more structures, he should plant more trees or am I the only one noticing that the air is getting stiff due to more impurities than oxygen. I hope we don't get to be like New York in that aspect.
He has also increased land use tax when he knows that the cost of Living in Lagos State is really high and have just gotten higher with respect to accommodation.

There is no proof in real time that inflationary rates are on a downward path , the figures that the NBS are toying with can best be described as imaginary and deceptive . The truth is that rate of inflationary climb has slowed but to say there is a fall is disrespectful deception.

Good, anyone thinking that Naira will go below N300 to $1 at this time is in delusion, the high exchange rate is one of the reason for the increase in local production. People should ask themselves why prices of food and other consumables are reducing and $ exchange rate remain unchanged.

The manifestation of the inflation decline is not really visible to majority of Nigerians. We need short terms monetary and fiscal policies that will tackle unemployment and reduce hunger and starvation.

You're right. Double digit interest rate is not good for the economy.
But your alluding shoring up of FR for campaign strategy doesn't make any sense at all.
