Galvanizing artisans, traders to boost weak economy

The Informal sector is an economic activity that is neither taxed nor monitored by a government; and is not included in that government’s Gross National Product (GNP); as opposed to a formal economy. It refers to very small-scale units producing and distributing goods and services, and consisting largely independent, self employed producers in urban areas of developing countries.

Is Nigeria’s de-industrialisation imminent?

The above title may seem out of place in the wake of the launch of “Nigeria’s Industrial Revolution Plan” by President Goodluck Jonathan in February this year.
