China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

The on­go­ing mas­sive cap­i­tal in­vest­ment pro­gram by the Nige­rian govern­ment is help­ing the coun­try get out of a re­ces­sion grad­u­ally, a se­nior of­fi­cial said. Speak­ing at a fo­rum in Abuja, the na­tion’s cap­i­tal city, Ac­coun­tant-General of the Fed­er­a­tion of Nige­ria Idris Ahmed, said the re­cent an­nounce­ment by the In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund that Nige­ria had the big­gest econ­omy in Africa demon­strated the re­silience of the econ­omy. “The IMF rating con­firms the re­silience of our econ­omy and the re­silience of Nige­ri­ans in terms of com­ing out of this re­ces­sion,” he added.
