The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has released the Consumer Price Index report, which measures inflation, with the rate dropping year-on-year from 16.01 per cent in August to 15.98 per cent in September.

In the report that was released on Tuesday in Abuja, the bureau explained that the drop in Nigeria’s rate of inflation in September was the eighth consecutive month that the index would be declining since January this year.

On a month-on-month basis, the NBS stated that the headline index increased by 0.78 per cent in September, in contrast to the 0.97 per cent recorded in August this year.

The national bureau stated that the “Consumer Price Index which measures inflation increased by 15.98 per cent (year-on-year) in September 2017.

“This was 0.03 per cent points lower than the rate recorded in August (16.01) per cent, making it the eighth consecutive decline in the rate of headline year on year inflation since January 2017.”
