Nigeria could actually be a trillion-dollar economy. That's the message, many economic-experts and stake-holders are sending, after the recent-rebasing, of the calculation, of what is now Africa's largest-economy. Research indicates, that Nigeria has one of the largest, informal-economies in the world... and that, this..is yet to be captured, in gross domestic product calculations. As CCTV'S Peter Wakaba found-out, global financial-service-providers, are positioning themselves, to take advantage, of this opportunity, which is far beyond, the recently announced, GDP calculation, of some 510 million dollars.
