“Even after a 30 percent devaluation of the naira last month knocked almost $150 billion off its gross domestic product when measured in dollar terms.

“South Africa, which has regained second place after overtaking Egypt, is closing the gap.

“While South African economy also shrank, the gap with Nigeria has narrowed to $60 billion now from $170 billion at the end of 2015.

“Nigeria’s economy could contract this year and President Muhammadu Buhari’s government is seen as having few plans in place to turn the slump around.

“That’s the missing link and we haven’t heard enough on how they are going to improve and make the business environment more conducive.

“There has been little color on fiscal policies to drive the growth agenda,” Bloomberg said.
