Millions In Nigeria Struggles To Buy Food, Fuel As Country Face Worst Economic Crisis In Generation


Millions in Nigeria are struggling to buy food, fuel and medicine as the country faces its worst economic crisis in a generation.

The country’s decline has been sharp: Two years ago, Nigeria was Africa’s biggest economy; this year, it is set to fall to fourth.

The crisis is believed to be rooted in the removal of some fuel subsidies and the devaluation of the currency — two changes set down by a president elected 15 months ago. 

Punishing inflation means poverty rates are expected to rise even higher.
