Abuja — Nigeria’s inflation picked up again in February, hitting 21.91% in annual terms from 21.82% in January, its statistics agency said on Wednesday.
Inflation had risen in Africa’s biggest economy for 10 straight months last year, prompting a string of interest rate hikes from the central bank. The pace of price increases dipped in December but started to rise again in January.
