In 2017, when NIPC started tracking investment announcements, $66.36bn worth of announcements in 112 projects across 27 states and the FCT were noted. Although these are investment announcements and do not suggest actual investments, they give a sense of investor interest in Nigeria.

In terms of actual capital flows, in 2017, Nigeria recorded $12.4bn of capital flows, compared to only $5.1bn in 2016. The flows increased progressively from Q1 2017, with each quarter materially higher than the corresponding period in 2016.
