The Nigerian economy slipped into its second recession in five years after the gross domestic product contracted the second consecutive quarter.

According to gross domestic product numbers released by the NBS on Saturday, the nation recorded a contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

This is the second consecutive quarterly GDP decline since the recession of 2016. The cumulative GDP for the first nine months of 2020, therefore, stood at -2.48 percent.
