Nigeria's current debt profile when compared to the size of its economy is the lowest in the world, the vice president Yemi Osinbajo has said.
Osinbajo while speaking at the 50th convocation of the University of Lagos, Akoka, themed “Nigeria Rising: The Path to Prosperity” said that the inflation in Nigeria had stabilised at 11% over the past six months.
He also said that within the next four years Nigeria would witness series of reforms in aviation, export and import sectors while the regulatory agencies would broaden into business facilitators.
Osinbajo said: "The decline in growth, which started at the end of 2014, has been reversed, inflation has stabilised at about 11% over the past six months and our current account was in surplus around 1.3% of the Gross Domestic Product last year."
“Our foreign reserves can cover at least six months of import of goods and services and despite understandable concerns, our debt burden is only about 22% of the size of our economy, which is one of the lowest ratios in the world.
