Marina Guimaraes from Wikistrat interviewed Omololu Fagbadebo, a senior expert on Nigeria, to discuss the internal and external factors affecting the future of Nigeria in Wikistrat's latest podcast episode.
According to the African Development Bank (ADB), Nigeria's economy is likely to grow 1.5% in 2021 and 2.9% in 2022. After the protests in October 2020, the country has received growing media attention. Now, with the increase of kidnappings and terrorism, as well as the highest level of inflation in four years, the path ahead for Nigeria seems uncertain. To talk about this issue, Wikistrat's podcast host, Marina Guimaraes, spoke with Omololu Fagbadebo.
Mr. Omololu Fagbadebo is a Research Fellow at the Durban University of Technology, South Africa, and was the Press Secretary to the Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Nigeria, from 1999 to 2003.
