Nigerians express hope for the new year 2022

In what has become a tradition over the years, Christians and non-Christians in Nigeria visit various worship centers to pray their way into the New Year.

At the turn of every year, Nigerians do have plans and expectations for the incoming year.

2022 is expected to witness an increase in political activities in the year preceding the 2023 general elections.

"For 2022, it is going to be few months to the next general elections in Nigeria; I expect the government to perform well. They will try to do their best, so that citizens can vote for them again. I think they need to be better and set their priorities straight"- Oreoluwa Adeyeye, a content creator, told Africanews.

We need to improve ourselves; we tend to imitate the western world which I feel is wrong. We have a voice, which needs to be heard. Lukman Iyiol, an entrepreneur, told the news media service.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected a 2.7 per cent economic growth for Nigeria in 2022 citing a recovery in the non-oil sectors and the rising price of crude oil.

For many Nigerians, the hope is that this would translate into meaningful impact in living standards which has particularly taken a hit from the adverse economic effect of COVID-19 and a falling Naira.
