Why Nigeria’s Economy Will Continue To Recover – Rewane

Financial expert, Bismarck Rewane says the country’s economy will continue to recover as long oil prices remain higher.

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Financial Derivatives Company made this known on Tuesday during Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc’s webinar.

According to Rewane, the supply of COVID-19 vaccines has continued to reduce the impact of Omicron on oil demand and the effect of the Iran nuclear deal is expected to push up the nation’s oil supply to the global market.

Rewane stated that sustained oil supply concerns had helped to shore up global oil prices above $80 per barrel, adding that Nigeria’s economy will continue to recover as witnessed in the last quarter of 2021.
