Why recession may persist

From muted speculations to official confirmation, the message is the same: Nigeria is fully in economic recession.

The situation has already been described as the lowest economic performance in about 25 years with over four million jobs lost in one year. And it may take about three years to overcome, according to an expert.

The data released yesterday, after much hesitation by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), showed that the Federal Government could no longer continue to live a lie about the true state of the economy.

Nigeria has recorded a negative Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate for two consecutive quarters in 2016, thus officially indicating a recessed economy, as the NBS released the second quarter economic report.

In his preface to the Q2 Economic Report, Statistician-General, Dr Yemi Kale said: “The key attribute of Quarterly National Accounts (QNA) is that they provide a reasonable level of detail of the economy that helps government to assess, analyse, and monitor economic growth on a regular basis.”

In its immediate reaction to the NBS data, the presidency attributed the recession to the drop in government revenue on account of the fall in international oil prices, compounded by incessant attacks on pipelines and sabotage.

Specifically, the severe drop in crude oil prices, decline in government revenue, devaluation of the naira and surging inflation rates, in addition to the country’s high poverty (70 per cent) and unemployment (12.1per cent) rates have had a detrimental effect on the economic security of most citizens and households.

But more worrisome is the depth of the recession, with the GDP declining at -2.06 per cent, more than the expected growth for the entire year at 1.8 per cent, as projected by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

According to the bureau, the GDP decline was dipped by 1.70 per cent points from the negative growth rate of -0.36 per cent recorded in the first quarter, and also lowered by 4.41 per cent points from the growth rate of 2.35 per cent recorded in the corresponding quarter of 2015.

Analysts predicted that the stagnation may be worse given the crises in the socio-political economy.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of International Energy Services (IES) Limited, Dr Diran Fawibe, in an interview with The Guardian, said the country had been lying with statistics which negated the real situation in the country. He said Nigeria had been in recession long before it finally admitted to it.

Frontline economist and Chief Executive Officer of Financial Derivates Limited, Bismarck Rewane said though the official report came out yesterday, it was long obvious that the country was in recession. “The challenge is that the recession was deeper than we thought,” he said.

Deputy Managing Director of Afrinvest, Victor Ndukauba said the NBS report was expected. “There were no surprises; it was actually expected the GDP would have contracted further than announced based on what was happening in the economy.”

He disagreed that drop in oil revenues plunged Nigeria into recession, saying it had more to do with governance and fiscal policies, especially as there was “lack of spending from the public sector, no dollar inflow, therefore little investment.”

Under the circumstances, he said “there are no silver bullets, the only solution is for the government to spend its way out on infrastructure investments – education, healthcare, power, transportation, etc.”

According to Ndukauba, it may take up to three years before Nigeria can come out of the recession.

Rewane said: “We now have our work cut out for us. We need investor’s confidence now more than anytime else and all hands must be on deck. We must woo the investors now, but it is not a magic wand. We must first do our work.”

For President of the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria, Prof. Segun Ajibola, “we must go back to the root of the crisis and that is oil economy and pattern of consumption. We are exposed to external shock and it can be tamed as well.”

The Director-General of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Muda Yusuf, admitted that many Nigerians are exploring opportunities in the agric and informal sector because many workers have had their salaries slashed while many are being owed for several months both in the public and private sector.

“This is the time to produce what we need to save the crisis of foreign exchange and dependence on imported items.”

But the Federal Government assured the nation yesterday that it was making efforts to tackle the drift.

The assurance came as President Muhammadu Buhari announced a change of the name of the Ministry of Solid Minerals to Ministry of Mines and Steel Development during the Federal Executive Council ‎(FEC) meeting in Abuja.

Minister of Finance, Kemi Ade‎osun, who answered questions on the report of the NBS which officially confirmed that Nigeria was in recession, attributed the economic predicament in the country to inadequate investments in capital projects over the years.

Adeosun said the ‎recession of the economy was not an overnight phenomenon but started as far back as six years ago. She said the indices were available for discerning analysts to see as more money was spent on recurrent than on capital infrastructure, which the current administration is striving to correct.

“With the economy’s overdependence on oil earnings, the sharp drop in the commodity’s price only worsened the situation”, she pointed out, assuring however that though Nigeria has a long way to go, the country was “on the right hands‎”.

The minister also announced the FEC’s approval of a three-year rolling external borrowing plan (2016-2018) which will be forwarded for approval by the National Assembly.

Man exchanges two siblings for bags of rice

An unidentified middle-aged man, Wednesday, abducted two siblings, who were returning from extra-moral class in Satellite area of Lagos. Thereafter, he exchanged them for two bags of rice in a shop at 63, Marwa Road, near Chemist Bus Stop. The children are aged eight and 13. It was gathered that at the shop, the abductor told the sales girl that he would like to take two bags of rice to the mother of the children, whom he claimed owned a restaurant close-by, to ascertain whether the rice was the brand she needed. Speaking with Vanguard last night, owner of the shop, Mrs Silverline, explained that “he (the abductor) told my sales girl that the mother of the children needed Indian rice, but my sales girl told him that what we had was Brazilian rice and that it was good. “Thereafter, he made a phone call to someone he claimed was the mother of the children and at the end said he would like to take the bags of rice to the woman. But my girl insisted on following him to collect the money for the bags (N40,000) should the woman agree to buy them. “The stranger said he would ride on a motorcycle with the bags of rice, while my girl followed with the children on foot. But on reaching the purported restaurant, the owner said she never saw any one with bags of rice, neither did she admit knowing the children. “They walked to Ijegun end of Satellite without any sight of the abductor. When we asked the children about him, they said that the abductor was not their father.” An eyewitness, Ifeoma John, said that immediately the abductor left with the bags of rice, a man who claimed to be the biological father of the children, arrived, alleging that his children could have been hypnotised by the abductor. He contacted policemen from Satellite Division, who took everyone involved to the station, from where the children were released to their parents.

Change not achieved on bed of roses — Buhari

Nigerians never had a bed of roses, at least in the last three decades plus. It was Nigerian politicians, top military men, and those connected to them that had beds of roses. People are suffering, really suffering. Maybe it’s time to forget change for a while and attend to this suffering first.

Where’s Zika going next? Maybe China, India, or Nigeria

Scientists trying to predict the future path of Zika say that 2.6 billion people living in parts of Asia and Africa could be at risk of infection, based on a new analysis of travel, climate and mosquito patterns in those regions.

Some of the most vulnerable countries include India, China, the Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria, Vietnam, Pakistan and Bangladesh, according to the research.

Experts caution that the study could overestimate the number of people at risk because they don’t know whether Zika had already landed in some of these countries in the past and allowed people to develop immunity. More than two-thirds of people infected with Zika never get sick, and symptoms are mild for those who do, so surveillance systems may have missed cases.

Although Zika was first identified in 1947, the virus wasn’t considered a major health threat until a major outbreak in Brazil last year revealed that Zika can lead to severe birth defects when pregnant women are infected.

In February, the World Health Organization declared the spread of Zika a global emergency, and epidemics have been sparked in at least 70 countries. In the last few weeks, it has sickened more than 100 people in Singapore and started spreading in Florida. Zika is mostly spread by a specific species of tropical mosquito, but it can also be spread by sex and through blood transfusions.

Researchers hope their new study will help officials plan ahead to possibly avoid some of the worst effects of Zika.

“For countries with a finite amount of resources, this may help them use those resources as efficiently as possible,” said Dr Kamran Khan, an infectious diseases physician and scientist at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, the study’s senior author.

To figure out where Zika might gain a future foothold, researchers examined patterns of people traveling from infected regions in the Americas to Africa and Asia and combined that with an assessment of local conditions, including mosquito populations. They used the spread of a related virus, dengue, as a model for Zika since the same mosquito species transmits both diseases. Dengue is not spread by sex, like Zika, but mosquitoes are responsible for the vast majority of Zika cases globally.

The study was published online Thursday in the journal, Lancet.

Some experts pointed out that the expected impact of Zika will depend largely on whether people have any previous exposure to the virus — and that is unknown.

“No one has ever looked, so we don’t know if there is any pre-existing immunity to the virus,” said Dr Abraham Goorhuis of the University of Amsterdam, an author of a commentary that accompanies the Lancet study. The virus in the Americas is an Asian strain that was responsible for a large outbreak in French Polynesia and other Pacific Islands in 2013 and 2014.

“If there was broad circulation of this virus in Asia, then it could be that the risk of Zika spreading to Asia won’t be as bad as we think,” Goorhuis said. He said another big unknown was whether people who might have been exposed to the African strain of Zika might be protected once the slightly different Asian version arrives. It’s unclear how widely the original 1947 strain found in Africa may have spread.

Goorhuis also noted it was possible Zika might eventually burn itself out after about a year or so of circulation, the way a related virus, chikungunya, recently did.

Others said scientists should seize the chance now to prevent Zika from becoming entrenched elsewhere.

Ben Neuman, a virology professor at the University of Reading, said that once the virus has started to spread by mosquitoes locally, and not just by travelers, it can become entrenched in animals as well as people and be extremely difficult to eradicate. “We have the opportunity right now to prevent (Zika’s) spread and by doing so, halting the spread of unnecessary suffering,” he said.
