Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) reports that US$3.95 billion was tracked as investment announcements for Q3 2020. This represents 57% less than the value tracked in the corresponding period in 2019 (US$9.29 billion). The drop in value can be attributed to the impact of COVID-19 and its global economic impact.  

The Commission publishes NIPC Intelligence Newsletter 6 days a week, and through it, a total of 13 projects across 8 states were tracked. 3 of the investment announcements were start-up enterprises in health care delivery, and information and communication technology (software development).

Kogi State received the largest share of the investments announced with US$1 billion, followed by Lagos State with US$239 million, Ogun State with US$75 million and Cross Rivers State with US$15 million.
