Nigeria’s External Reserves Climb Back To $42b by dipoolowoo: 1:58pm On Nov 30, 2018

The external reserves of Africa’s largest economy returned to $42 billion after one month it fell below this present level.

Data obtained by Business Post from the online portal of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) showed that as at Wednesday, November 2, 2018, the amount left in Nigeria’s foreign reserves was $41.992 billion, approximately $42 billion.

On October 31, 2018, the reserves depleted to $41.995 billion from $42.062 billion the previous day and since then, things have been going badly.

At a point this month, precisely on November 22, the external reserves dropped to $41.523 billion, before starting to pick up since the next day to its present level.

Business Post reports that the decline in the foreign reserves was almost becoming a source of worry for analysts, coupled with the gradual fall in the prices of crude oil in the global market.

Nigeria depends mainly on the sale of the Brent crude oil to earn foreign exchange and at the moment, the commodity goes for $58 per barrel.

For a long time, the CBN, which manages nation’s reserves, has been supporting the Naira with the weekly sale of about $210 million to currency traders in the country.

This has left Naira relatively stable at N363 to a Dollar for a long time at the parallel market until few days ago when the local currency started to lose its value against the Dollar, hitting N370 at the close of transactions yesterday.

With the price of crude oil gradually declining as well as election spendings by politicians ahead of the 2019 polls, there are renewed fears that the Naira will continue to fall.

Na who give am the ladder wey e take climb?




Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, the Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).

A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Government.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much poo (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided its self on the amount of poo it gives our citizens.

Should you feel that you do not receive enough poo, please bring this to the attention of your Representative at either the Senate or house of rep who has been trained to give you all the poo you can handle.

Sincerely,

The E.V.I.L. (Economic Value of Individual Lives) Committee

What is the need of increasing the external reserve when the populace is plaqued with intense hardship and poverty. Until we learn to respect the naìra more than any other currency in the world, the naira and it users will continue to suffer.

Even a year 1 under graduate know that there is no point saving money when there is economic downturn. It was keysian economic principles that bailed out America during d global depression. Buhari just is a mess.

No savings means one dollar exchanges for 10000 naira.

With severe inflation.

You mean the way GEJ touched our foreign reserves and killed it to $27b but PMB has raised it above the $41b mark?

Buhari has a midas touch compared to the PDP death grip of 16 years
