2016 Annual Report

The operating environment in the year 2016 was significantly impacted by the recessionary state of the economy which was itself caused by decline in government revenue, shortage of inflow of major foreign currencies into the economy, rise in interest rates, inflation etc. Notwithstanding the depressed economic environment, investment income increased by 27% from NGN9.9billion in 2015 to NGN12.9billion in 2016. In addition, the company recorded significant income from foreign exchange gains following the devaluation of the Naira.

2015 Annual Report

The year 2015 was greatly impacted by the continued activities of terrorism in some parts of the country and the political tension in the run-up to the election coupled with the anxiety of a likely post-election crisis. The uncertainty of the political and economic policies following the general elections created a lull in the economic activities of the country. Despite the effect of low oil price on the fiscal programme of the federal and state governments, monetary policies, scarcity of inputs such as forex, fuel, electricity, imported raw materials for industries, the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics shows that the rate of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by 2.79% compared to the 6.22% in 2014.

2014 Annual Report

The year 2014 witnessed deepening activities of terrorism across the Northern parts of our country and this hampered economic activities in all sectors. This, coupled with the global decline of oil price which fell below $50 a level not seen in the past 6 years, led to the depreciation of the Naira and dwindling of our foreign reserves. Despite these challenges, when measured by the Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the economy grew by 5.94% in 2014, which is lower by 0.83% than the rates recorded in 2013.
