According to TheCable, the world’s most populous black nation, Nigeria has officially slid into its worst economic recession in over three decades.

TheCable reports that according to gross domestic product numbers released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Saturday, the nation recorded a contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

This is the second consecutive quarterly GDP decline since the recession of 2016. The cumulative GDP for the first nine months of 2020, therefore, stood at -2.48 percent.
