Abuja, Lagos, Abia Contribute 99% To Nigeria's $5.5b Capital Importation In Q2 by dipoolowoo: 2:38pm On Aug 27, 2018

Last week, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) revealed in a report that the total value of capital importation into Nigeria stood at $5.5 billion in the second quarter of 2018.

According to the report, this was a decrease of 12.53 percent compared with Q1 2018, but a 207.62 percent increase compared with the second quarter of 2017.

It was disclosed that the decline recorded in the second quarter was as a result of a decline in Portfolio and Other Investments, which declined by 9.76 percent and 24.07 percent respectively.

The largest amount of capital importation by type was received through Portfolio investment, which accounted for 74.7 percent ($4.1 billion) of total capital importation, followed by Other Investment, which accounted for 20.5 percent ($1.1 billion) of total capital, and then Foreign Direct Investment FDI, which accounted for 4.7 percent ($261.4 million) of total capital imported in the second quarter.

However, an analysis of the report by Business Post showed that out of the $5.5 billion of the nation’s capital importation for the period under review, Abuja, Lagos and Abia States contributed 99.28 percent, while the remaining 34 states of the federation added a meagre 0.72 percent to the total value.

According to the stats office, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, at $2.6 billion, maintained its lead among recipients of capital import in the second quarter of 2018 after surpassing Lagos in the fourth quarter of 2017.

This represented 46.21 percent of the total capital importation into Nigeria in the quarter under review.

Abuja was followed by Lagos, which received the second largest amount of capital inflow of $1.7 billion or 30.08 percent of the total.

When compared with the preceding quarter, however, the capital inflow into Abuja and Lagos, declined by 28.13 percent and 37.80 percent respectively.

Furthermore, Abia State received $1.3 billion, accounting for 22.99 percent of the total capital importation in the quarter.

In all, Abuja, Lagos, and Abia together represented more than 99 percent of the total capital import in the second quarter.

The NBS said in its report that foreign capital investment in Akwa Ibom and Ogun States recorded $16.10 million and $12.74 million respectively, a decline of 63.09 percent and 48.05 percent, over the previous quarter.

Enugu State, which only had marginal foreign inflow previously, recorded $1.31 million in the second quarter and became the eighth top destination in Nigeria to attract foreign capital investment.

Wow, very interesting and revealing!! For a state like Abia to receive such staggering foreign capital inflows is massive and running neck on neck with Abuja and Lagos is very impressive to say the least. It's obvious that Lagos has finally reached saturation point and is now gradually losing out to others.

Abia has a huge potential to emerge as a frontier state if only it'd governors can think outside the box. Aba alone has immense potentials, the exact type that made China and the Asian Tigers to become prosperous. The governors should reposition the international markets within the city, improve infrastructure in the city's many industrial estates, allow Geometric power to supply non stop electricity to homes, markets and industries. Improve on the sanitation and roads etc and watch how Enyimba city will rise to become a great city.

For a single city to be supplying the whole of Nigeria and beyond with consumer goods like shoes, belts, bags, boxers, singlets, suits, trousers, shirts, bed spreads on a mass scale is indeed very impressive!!

Enyimba City is on the RISE. Not only is Abia state doing well educationally, their economic activities is growing exponentially.

Aba businesses and manufacturers export so many goods daily to not just other states but to other countries.

I totally agree with you. No wonder FG is focusing some infrastructures in SE with Aba as a focal point.

Lagos was the capital of Nigeria thus had federal input.
Abuja is the capital of Nigeria thus has federal input.
Abia is self-made with zero federal input thus is the only one on the list worthy of praise.

Igbo Amaka!!!

Shut up man, you guys should stop these shameless statements. I'm Igbo but this beating of chest for nothing really should stop. Without Igbos, Lagos would still do great if not better.
