. I knw it wnt mean in ur eyes because it is pmb. If doesnt mean y are countries keeping reserve. Too many olodo plenty here

you are just a clown.

you won't read to understand, but quickly open your barely literate yaw to spew trash from the dust pile you call a brain.

I clearly inferred that for reserves to make sense, you need certain factors to be appropriately placed. without those, your reserves are overrated...

that argument goes for whatever government is in place & not the myopic view of your limited understanding.

if not that the international monetary organizations require some minimum amount to be in that external reserve, i know for sure that naija polithiefcians would have withdrawn and stolen every kobo in it.

Dem polithefians won't do that....because that would leave nothing for them to steal.

After all....Biology teaches us that parasites do not get rid of the host...that would mean their demise too. smiley

Mediocrity you call it?

Your hero met over 40 billion US dollars in foreign exchange account and the excess crude account at over 20 billion US dollars. With oil selling over 100 dollars per barrel almost throughout his reign, imagine if he added a billion US dollars every two months.

That will leave you with what? 2 x 30 = 60 + 47 = 107 billion US dollars. That's asides the 20 billion in the excess crude account.

But what did we end up having? He left 32 billion US dollars in Forex account and almost nothing in ECA.

So, where did the $75b go? How about the $20b?

This is despite having that overated woman in glasses as coordinating minister for the economy within the same period.

What's your definition of mediocrity again?

..... So you want someone that turn lagos to presidential seat of power few days to general election spending dollar reserve recklessly to save average of $1bn dollars per year.. It's like contemplating to relocate olumo rock from egba to Ibadan.. You can't give what you dont have in your possession..

Hmmmm.
Voting apc in 2015 was not bad idea. We thought that time the apc that comprises so many high rated politicians could perform far better than pdp.

But obviously we overrated them.
APC is now only concern of winning elections just like pdp did.

The pdp man, obj that was godfather of pdp across the country during his presidency is now nobody because he failed to build legacy projects.

If there was anything in the reserve, would the total be $25B?


Anyways, wailers will still come and curse Buhari , even though their own father's failed woefully at controlling thier own family, not to talk of a whole nation of mind Fucccked people



I hope the reserves continue to rise, that's only how our exchange rate to usd will reduce


Kudos baba Buhari

Actually, we were borrowing during the last administration (see here)....because having oil does not mean you are rich per se. (Which is why Nigeria has been talking about diversification since the 1970's).

relax guys

only reason reserves grew is because cbn isn't giving funds.

our company has bills of close to $1m unpaid and we are small fish.

it's like saying you having 1m in your account but you are homeless and can't eat.

estimates by international analysts are that our import bill is over $2b a month.

right now last report released was that cbn has over $20b of unpaid bills and LC. reserves are just propaganda.

for the last one month cbn has been giving only $1.5m daily while demand is closer to 100m a day. LOL at people hailing increase in reserve.

dollar is still 485 as i speak. and rising.

reserve has nothing to do with dollar price. most likely dollar will actually go higher since cbn refuses to pay bills for collections and Lcs

In a way, it was because Obasanjo and Yaradua (whose saving mentality makes PMB look like a liberal spender) saved that we were able to survive the fall in oil prcies between 2008/9.

And let's be frank.....we have to save as much as possible....because the way things are going, oil prices are going to keep on falling and falling....and if we do not have something in reserve....we would be in a worse state than we were last year....if oil should fall.

Of course....we may have to do some spending. That is where spending more on power and transport comes in...which is what I think this govt should be doing.

I disagree with you. If we have in place good infrastructures, reserve will automatically go up with any pressure on the economy.

For instance, I read a report that Nigerians spend nearly 30billion annually on water. Now if we have a good pipe borne water system. If the government take 1 naira per 20 litres of water provide as task, I doubt we will be talking about reserve and poor water system in Nigeria.

Many of such infrastructures that will put money in the coffer of the government at the same time making life easy and developing the nation abound.

Leadership is vision executed with precision.

Forgive my naivety o. But, why then are they trying to borrow money?? Any one pls explain.

They can't generate enough income to run their budget. 

They miscalculated on fines and taxes through bogus assumptions from Lagos IGR conjectures/exaggerations - recall that they slammed MTN over a N1trn fine - such were the amount of irrationality they brought to government. 

They couldn't swallow their pride to accommodate the Niger Delta amnesty program that has proven workable since Yaradua administration. They stopped the amnesty program immediately they assumed office just because of an over-bloated ego. The pipeline surveillance contracts awarded to ensure a 'buy-in' of the Niger Delta and forestall sabotage were similarly crudely stopped. Not because they found any alternatives with technology or military superior techniques but to just satisfy their irrational ego - 'the New Sherrifat in Town things.' The results were a devastating blowout of oil pipelines that has reduced our production capacity significantly.

And then they lacked the foresight and requisite strategies, skills and experience to deal with the oil price ‎volatility. We couldn't even get buyers for our oil at a point. 

They can't attract any tangible foreign investments - both portfolio and FDI. No investor takes us seriously. ‎Those already in are leaving. Those who don't have immediate exit plans are not expanding, they are merely 'coping'. Reports had it that over $80b dollars was pulled out of the country by investors in the first six months of this government.

Now, the country has totally been ran aground by Buhari and his gang. No money and no financial institution is ready to lend to us - except Akinwumi Adesina's AfDB that has granted us this paltry $600m, which they have added to the foreign exchange reserves and for which they are clinking glasses all over town. Note that the request made to AfDB was for $1b. ‎

The 'multi-quadrillion dollars' they alleged was 'looted' and for which they roamed the whole planet to 'repatriate' has not yielded anything. They don't even have money to pay to forensic accountants and lawyers to help them 'trace the loots'. 

What is more? The TSA as the 'cure-all capsule' has proven to be a disaster. ‎That is why ASUU is militant about getting itself excluded from it. More organizations with enough 'industrial muscles' could follow on ASUU's steps to opt out soon. ‎

Food costs will continue to increase; very soon, basic medicines and drugs in the hospitals will disappear, leading to high mortality rate. More companies will close down - with the attendant loss of jobs in the millions. ‎

Now, we are at the most vulnerable position we have ever been fiscally. IMF and World Bank are excited about our situation, as it were‎. They will come with their extreme 'policy support instruments' to be met with little or no formidable resistance, because, at this juncture we don't have any leverage. No bargaining chips. 

We are in a very bad shape.

At what point should we remind you that the former administration did not save a kobo? Or that they were already borrowing to pay salaries with only, N18b CAPEX for Min of Works in 2015?

Should we also remind you that oil prices fell by over 50%?
