Compensation Strategies in a Recovering Economy

The World Bank, in its Bi-annual Economic Update, predicted that the Nigerian economy will record a slight recovery from the recession in 2017. This position has also been reiterated by the Federal Government of Nigeria and its apex financial regulator, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
