SUBSIDY REINSTATED: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that the reintroduction of a gasoline subsidy in Nigeria could consume almost half of the country’s projected oil revenue this year. President Bola Tinubu halted the subsidy at in mid-2023 to help government repair its finances. However, the removal and a devaluation of the naira, led fuel prices to more than triple, fanning inflation and protests. The IMF said it expects the fuel subsidy to be phased out within two years, as a cash-transfer programme was implemented to cushion poor consumers. Photograph: Bloomberg

It has also raised a number of questions about the state – including the state of safety – of South Africa’s building and construction industry. The industry today is almost unrecognisable from what it was before so many of the country’s listed building majors either closed due to financial distress or exited the sector.
