The economy of Nigeria advanced by 3.11% from a year ago in the first quarter of 2022, following a 3.98% rise in the prior period. This marks the 3rd consecutive quarter of slowing growth. The non-oil sector expanded by 6.08%, faster than 4.73% in Q4, driven by good performance in information and communication (12.07% vs 5.03% in Q4), primarily telecommunications (14.50%); trade (6.54% vs 5.34%), financial and insurance (23.24% vs 24.14%); agriculture (3.16% vs 3.58%) and manufacturing (5.89% vs 2.28%). However, the oil sector plunged 26.04%, after an 8.06% slump in the previous quarter, reflecting lower oil output as the average daily crude oil production stood at 1.49 million barrels per day, down from 1.50 mbps in Q4 and 1.72 mbps a year ago. Nigeria has struggled to meet its production targets due to operational challenges and insecurity amid growing crude oil theft and pipeline vandalism.
