Once again, other African countries will look up to Nigeria for good reasons – This is as the West African country presently has the biggest economy in the continent.

Nigeria’s long-term rival, South Africa, is now second on the list, even with better economic projection by the IMF After much contention in the global businesses space, Nigeria finally has South Africa at its back and is now Africa’s biggest economy.
