Nigeria’s GDP records 5% growth for second quarter-NBS


The National Bureau of Statistics on Thursday released the Gross Domestic Product Report for the second quarter of this year with output growing by 5.01 percent during the period.

The NBS in the Report stated that the 5.01 percent marks three consecutive quarters of growth following the negative growth rates recorded in the second and third quarters of 2020.

The Q2 2021 growth rate was higher than the -6.10 percent growth rate recorded in Q2 2020 and the 0.51 percent recorded in Q1 2021 year on year.

This is an indication of the return of business and economic activity near levels seen prior to the nationwide implementation of COVID-19 related restrictions.

The Report stated that steady recovery observed since the end of 2020, with the gradual return of commercial activity as well as local and international travel, accounted for the significant increase in growth performance relative to the second quarter of 2020 when nationwide restrictions took effect.

Year to date, real GDP grew 2.70 percent in 2021 compared to -2.18 percent for the first half of 2020.

Nevertheless, quarter on quarter, real GDP grew at -0.79 percent in Q2 2021 compared to Q1 2021, reflecting slightly slower economic activity than the preceding quarter due largely to seasonality.

In the quarter under review, aggregate GDP stood at N39.12trn in nominal terms, higher than the second quarter of 2020 with aggregate GDP of N34.02trn, indicating a year-on-year nominal growth rate of 14.99 percent.

The nominal GDP growth rate in Q2 2021 was higher than the -2.80 percent growth recorded in the second quarter of 2020 when economic activities slowed sharply at the outset of the pandemic.

The Q2 2021 nominal growth rate was also higher than the 12.25 percent growth recorded in Q1 2021.
