The African Department of the International Monetary Fund has attributed the civil unrest in Nigeria, spiked by the peaceful EndSARS protest to the vulnerable state of the Nigerian economy.
This statement was made by the Board of the African Department of International Monetary Fund, during the Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Economic Outlook briefing, which was monitored by our reporter in Maiduguri.
The Board blamed the civil unrest and the social instability in the Nation on the economic difficulties in the country as well as Nigerias economy low growth prospect.
The Department explained that the difficult event that followed since the wake of the decline in oil prices in 2015-16 in Nigeria, has made economic prospects low in the country.
