Can Dollar Rate Ever Go Down To It's Rate Before Buhari Came Into Power? by remsonik(f): 8:44pm On Mar 18, 2022
Please I want to ask this question if the foreign currency rate to the Nigerian naira can ever go back to its rate before Buhari's government came into power. I remember in January 2014 $1=158-164naira while in December 2014 $1=180 naira. Now Buhari' came into power in 2015 and said his government will make $1=1 naira but now $1=580 naira and the economy is down as things are overly expensive.

If Buhari gets out of seat in 2023 and we have a new government in power can we ever get the dollar rate to what it was before buhari came into power?

It can fall below what it was in the black market before Buhari took over

It can be #200 by 2027 or below #200 sef

But it depends on the capacity of who becomes the president next year.

But don't also forget that the U.S. dollar has lost 17% of its value since 2014. Money do lose value, and it do appreciate, but is all a matter of how fast is it falling or rising. The rate at which the naira was falling apart under Buhari, I don't think such a thing has ever happen in Nigeria.

Buhari and Emefiele made a mistake by not protecting the Naira at some point, the Naira took a brutal beating, if not for the FG intervention, Dollar fit be close to or more than 1k by now

Yes it would.... Most of our National Forex income is spent on Fuel subsidy, with Dangote refinery agreeing to trade in Naira and accept crude oil swap, we would not need so much PetrolDollars and we would earn far more needed dollars from sales of our refined crude oil

Powerful enough to control Nigeria among all the aspirants so far
USD might be stable at 600/$ for a Long while
For USD to go back to 180/$
We will have to clear at least 70% of our debt

Are you serious?

On what basis are you saying the Naira will appreciate against the dollar only if we pay 60% of our debt.

It won't.
However what any serious Govt. can do is to deliberately formulate policies that will help local industries to produce those items that we massively import.
privatize our refineries, industrialization will really help to reduce the pressure on our naira.
Only then can the naira start making any gain against the dollar.
Anything apart from this, forget it, the naira will continue to go down.

Total removal of petrol subsidy and Dangote refinery will relieve the naira to some extent.

How will we clear our debt to make the dollar improve when there's no industrialization and there's corruption in government leading.
Political office holders are earning more than their performance and I believe they should be put on minimum wage that the civil servant and salary earners earn

Bro counting upon an individual's property as a way of salvaging a Nation is a shame. So if Dangote should die today what happens to the future of a Nation's economy built on the foundation of an individual's wealth?

Is it that impossible to make our refineries work or build new ones?

Atleast Abdulsalam Rabiu is building one in Akwa Ibom through BUA group

A 100 barrels per day refinery cost less than 10 million USD this means most Politicians can afford it instead of fancy hotels, event centers and empty estates

Then nigerians need to trade massively on commodities we have greater comparative advantage over other nation by capitalism with more value of our exports over imports as well as produce more items we import then the naira will grow stronger....

This was exactly what the present government thought before banning importation of rice and closing the borders. This singular policy sent the country back to the trenches.

It's not possible. Even if it was possible, it would take decades. I'm talking from an economists perspective.

Rather than be fixated on the exchange rate, your focus should be on ending Buhari's disastrous foreign exchange rate meddling that has left the economy prostrate since 2015.

I am sure any new coming government would allow the Naira find its true value by giving the CBN the autonomy which Buhari took away.

The economy would start its revival next year. All 3 presidential candidates seem to all belief in technocrats unlike Buhari who ignores lots of sound advice.

Peter Obi, Atiku and Bola Tinubu

Reduce dollar denominated transactions
In a nutshell, diversify the economy.
