Nigerians react

TheTalk.NG captured some reactions from Nigerians concerning the naira/dollar exchange rate.


The value of the Naira cannot be regained until certain factors are addressed. We have to agree with PO on this bcoz the only way for Naira to regain its value is through increased production.


Very good question. They will only keep fighting shadows because they can’t fight themselves.


They are there to use their experience and expertise to sink it again.


That ship is some kind of caricature played with by shenanigans, charlatans and scallywags. The ship desires new crew of active mental, physical and spiritual qualities.


Every morning I wake up, I check the exchange rate, look at my bank account and realize I’ve just lost a couple of my hard earned millions of naira without doing any transactions. All because I come from a country called Nigeria. So sad.


Those involved in round tripping of the forex are given prominent roles in the administration of the economy as it stands today

Omokri makes naira to dollar exchange rate admission

Meanwhile, TheTalk.NG reported that Reno Omokri, the outspoken former special assistant on social media to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, admitted that the naira “is not where I want it to be”.

According to Omokri, as of Thursday afternoon, May 2, the exchange rate was N1,350 to $1. The 50-year-old projected that the naira “will go up and down”.
