Nigeria will overtake South Africa's economy soon - FG

The Nigerian Federal Government says that Nigeria is on course to retake its lost position as Africa’s largest economy from South Africa.

Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udo Udoma, revealed this on Thursday during a summit workshop from the Infrastructure Public Private Partnership Summit Group.

His words:

“We are determined to turn this economy around and stimulate private sector investments. Losing our position as the biggest economy in Africa should in some way inspire us to work even harder.

“Sometimes when you are number two, you are actually more motivated to work hard and we should see it as something that should motivate all of us to work harder.”
