Middle East & Africa: Macroeconomic overview

Nigeria’s government has failed to come up with a solution to prevent attacks by the newly formed Niger Delta Avengers (NDA). The militants have been responsible for blowing up oil production infrastructure – including that of IOCs – in the Niger Delta. The NDA has so far ignored calls by the government to negotiate and says it wants to create a sovereign state in the Delta.
