Risk perceptions to delay Nigerian asset recovery

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Significance

Nigerian securities have been among the world's worst performing following the decline in oil prices since June 2014, which has -- together with a resurgent dollar -- also driven a dramatic slump in the currency.

Impacts

  • Opposition presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari's February visit to the United Kingdom may help generate financing for a longer campaign.
  • Suicide bombings outside of Boko Haram's usual northeast domain could provide the government with reasons to delay the election again.
  • High capital adequacy and reserve ration requirements could constrain domestic banks' ability to finance future privatisation schemes.
