CBN forecasts 3.24% growth in 2022

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has projected that the Nigerian economy will grow by 3.24 per cent in 2022, inspite of rising inflationary challenges occasioned by global socio-economic events.

Mr Godwin Emefiele, the CBN Governor, made this known on Monday while presenting a communique from the apex bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting.

He said the International Monetary Fund (IMF) also projected the economy to grow at 2.7 per cent, while the Federal Government projected a 4.21 per cent growth.

Emefiele, however,  said the MPC was concerned about the impact the global increase in petroleum and other products was having on the Nigerian economy.

“The committee further noted that this has resulted to inflation, and believes that specific actions need to be taken to ensure that this trend does not continue,” he said.
