  The United Kingdom–based credit rating agency Fitch, in its latest full report on Nigeria, forcasted 2.6% economic growth for West Africa’s largest economy this year,2018, (up from the 1% growth expected in 2017); the growth rate was a bit higher than 2.1% growth projected by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
