Nigeria’s Inflation Hits 33.69% by peekspot(m): 4:31pm On May 15

Nigeria’s headline inflation rate has increased to 33.69 per cent in April 2024 up from 33.20 per cent recorded in March 2024, the National Bureau of Statistics has said.

This represents a month-over-month increase of 0.49 per cent points in the headline inflation rate, according to the Consumer Price Index report, the NBS stated in a report on Wednesday.

Comparing year-on-year data, the inflation rate in April 2024 was 11.47 percentage points higher than in April 2023, where it stood at 22.22 per cent. This indicates that the headline inflation rate has risen significantly over the past year.

Additionally, on a month-to-month basis, the inflation rate for April 2024 was 2.29 per cent, which is 0.73 per cent lower than the 3.02 per cent recorded in March 2024. This suggests that the rate at which prices increased in April 2024 was slower than the rate in March 2024.

The report read, ” In April 2024, the headline inflation rate increased to 33.69% relative to the March 2024 headline inflation rate which was 33.20 per cent. Looking at the movement, the April 2024 headline inflation rate showed an increase of 0.49% points when compared to the March 2024 headline inflation rate.

“On a year-on-year basis, the headline inflation rate was 11.47 per cent points higher compared to the rate recorded in April 2023, which was 22.22 per cent. This shows that the headline inflation rate (year-on-year basis) increased in April 2024 when compared to the same month in the preceding year (i.e., April 2023).

“Furthermore, on a month-on-month basis, the headline inflation rate in April 2024 was 2.29 per cent, which was 0.73 per cent lower than the rate recorded in March 2024 (3.02 per cent). This means that in April 2024, the rate of increase in the average price level is less than the rate of increase in the average price level in March 2024.”

Food inflation however reduced by 1.11 per cent caused by a fall in the rate of increase in the average prices of basic food commodities.

“On a month-on-month basis, the Food inflation rate in April 2024 was 2.50% which shows a 1.11 per cent decrease compared to the rate recorded in March 2024 (3.62 per cent). The fall in Food inflation on a Month-on-Month basis was caused by a fall in the rate of increase in the average prices.”

Now the olodo can see how the minute statistical indices can make or mar the economic life of a nation. Two-digits galloping inflation no be am for an elastic limit over stretched economy like ours.

Nigerians would learn economics by force

Provide adequate credit facilities for major industries... Nope

Provide real infrastructure needed by industries... Nope

Provide tax relief for industries to boast production... Nope

Streamline export documentation and requirements nope

Allow smooth import of raw materials we don't have comparative advantage of... Nope

No let's build rail way between Abuja Kaduna, Lagos Ibadan that are more expensive than buses and won't even be used to move goods

Let's build a costal road to calabar when the road leading to Calabar is bad for 15 trillion

Lets borrow 750 billion to give people free meters

Lets borrow billions of dollars to defend naira at an unsustainable rate so we can brag about it



The let's provide 75 billion for SMEs and make the process to access it difficult

Less give people 30 dollars or 50k naira to start nano business

Then we sit and wonder why the economy is not growing
Then ask what anymore could have done different

it's clearly the government púnishing Nigerians right now with their ego and wickedness..

You make a policy.. it is harsh and clearly not working.. the smart and honorable thing to do and quickly too is to make a reversal. They refuse. Kenya did it. They quickly and wisely made a reversal and took other options. Now they are growing and better for it.

You can't be the only one living big while Nigerians live in pains and misery..

A government's promise of a better tomorrow is a scam.. whereas they are living and stealing big now.. why are they not waiting for tomorrow if tomorrow is so important to them..

Nigerians need to wake up from this poverty-induced trance and demand a better deal.
That seems to be what would make this people do better.

Nigerians deserve better abeg 🤔🤔

You can still have development without subjecting everyone to all of these.. high price hiking over a short period is not good governance..

no nation in the world has ever taxed it way to greatness. Most of the great nations you see paying high tax today are already great before doing that.. they become great via massive industrialization. Taxing and borrowing are what làzy leaders do as an easy way to go.. here, we have customs raising import duties on a daily basis in a struggling economy 🤔

a purposeful leader would be thinking of reviving the steel sector sincerely, bringing back the textile sector sincerely, putting together Auto Assemblies around the country..

Massive production via industrialization, Sincere and Purpose leadership, Judicious application of resources, blocking leakages and putting the right people in positions can achieve so much for us..
