Nigeria’s GDP slumps as expected

Nigeria’s Q2 GDP performance was released this morning, with GDP down 6.10% year-on-year and non-oil GDP down 6.05% y/y. This was not a surprise (although one forecast poll predicted a 4.05% decline), given that in June the World Bank forecast a 3.2% contraction and the IMF forecast a 5.4% contraction for full-year 2020, suggesting that some poor quarters lay ahead.

We noted offers across the benchmark curve all session, but with no matching bids as investors continue to sit on the sidelines. Even offers at the long-end at 10.00% levels were not seen as enticing enough to bring client demand. Consequently, yields expanded by c.25bps on the average across the bond curve.
