US economic sanctions were finally lifted this month (which costed $45 billion in past 20 years) and the gulf has been pumping billions into the country recently with FDI volume reaching about $50 billion last time I checked

A mineral boom with increase in overall production of gold, copper etc... surprisingly, tourism growing as well with a goal of reaching 5 million visitors annually by year 2020

I seem to recall that in 2013, Tunisia and Ghana each had a larger GDP than either Ethiopia or Kenya. Now the GDP of each of the latter 2 is almost equal to the summation of that of the former 2, just 4years down the line.

I donít think ghana ever had a gdp that big. But in general the rest of africa has been catching up with North Africa and closing the gap

How does this correlates with your earlier post.
And u dnt need to make an insult to make a valid point,
And for the $150 billion u said is missing, like I said earlier u still need alot to learn in economics.
Well, Nigeria gdp have to shrink due to the devaluation of its currency.
If Nigeria can create another source of income for its economy and inprove its availability of forex which translates to a stronger currency, its GDP have to expand more.
Thats it, its not rocket science.
For u to come to the internet to call people id*ot is morally unacceptable.
you have been noticed.now play along.

You actually think I said 150bn is missing ? You think like a simple cowherder. Iím not referring to theft. I said since this administration came in nigeria lost $150bn. If you read this thread youíd see that the devaluation of the naira and has been discussed in detail. You havenít shed any light on the issue
I called you an idiot because you are one
