The economy ranking referred to Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $13.1 trillion, young and vibrant population, as well as rapid growth of key sectors like agriculture, energy, and technology, as main drivers of the enviable economic rise that the country would achieve.

According to the report, “25 Largest Economies in the World by 2075,” the current administration of President Bola Tinubu’s focus on such areas as education, skills development, and infrastructure upgrades has laid a solid foundation for sustainable economic growth.
