Nigeria - Country assistance strategy (CAS) completion report review (Inglês)

The Bank resumed its assistance in 1998-99 after Nigeria's peaceful transition from military rule. The government sought private sector led growth and identified corruption and governance as the proximate causes of the economic decline. The Bank's three objectives since 1999 were to: (1) improve governance and economic management, (2) support economic growth through private sector development, and (3) develop local communities through empowerment. Bank assistance included considerable economic and sector work and 19 IDA financed projects for US$1,545 million, but disbursements remain low and project implementation poor. The Strategy Completion Report (SCR) spans four interim strategy updates since 1999. The Bank's three objectives were relevant, but were not attained to any significant degree. There were improvements in governance and economic management at the federal level, but fiscal decentralization bas undermined these efforts: half of total government spending occurs at state and local levels, where controls are inadequate, monitoring is weak, and progress on improving economic management has not been commensurate with that at the federal level. Private sector development, consisting of privatization, removing infrastructure bottlenecks and promoting agriculture, was not achieved, although there was some privatization of state owned enterprises. Finally, there was little progress toward empowerment and local community development. Overall, the outcome of Bank assistance is rated unsatisfactory.
