The International Monetary Fund has predicted that Nigeria’s economy will grow faster than South Africa’s in 2017.

This is a reverse from the fund’s earlier projection in July that South Africa’s economy will grow by 1% in 2017 while Nigeria will experience a 0.8% economic expansion.

This was revealed by Maurice Obstfeld, IMF’s chief economist, on Tuesday during the unveiling of the World Economic Outlook report at the organisation’s headquarters in Washington.
