The Future of Nigeria: Three critical levers for improving HDI

We identify three critical levers that need to be improved to enable Nigeria reach its socio- economic targets which we measure by a high human development status. These levers are:

  • Improving the ease of doing business
  • Enhancing labour productivity
  • Reducing the overall level of corruption perception

Thus, we conclude that progress across these three levers could result in a significant improvement in Nigeria's HDI score, reaching 0.73 (2014: 0.51), thereby attaining a “high human development” status by 2030. Specifically, we target Nigeria improves:

  • Ease of doing business
  • Labour productivity
  • CPI score
