If dom accounts are banned but people buy dollars to keep in cash, then how is the speculation part of the problem solved
.

There is a difference between keeping $10,000 or less in cash and keeping millions of dollars in cash.

If dom accounts are banned, only f000ls will keep their dollars in cash…..theft, fire etc

Like I said, forget about politicians. There are many professionals whose wealth is in their dom account because that is what makes sense in a country where Naira investment makes no sense.

Nobody who is that enlightened and legitimate will keep his money in cash.

Most likely a ceiling will be put on how much you can have in a dom account maybe $10,000.

Why is the Naira falling? Because there is speculative purchase of dollars. Why is there speculative purchase? because people feel it wil continue to go lower and so it feeds on itself.

There is forex in the system, the problem is people are buying dollars not to purchase anything but to preserve their wealth, this is because we have dom accounts, so you can buy dollars and do nothing with it. Meanwhile those who have legitimate need for dollars are competeting with those who just want to buy dollars to put in their dom accounts.

The frenzy has started, Naira can easily hit N4000:$1. The only way to stop the slide is to ban dom accounts at which point the only people buying dollars will be those who have legitimate businesses and those willing to store in cash.

Mark it down that I said it here, the only solution and the only point at which the decline will stop is when dom accounts are banned.

Our yearly import bills are less than the yearly forex inflows (official and unofficial) so clearly this decline in Naira is speculation and hoarding.

But we've seen people storing large amounts of cash in various ways... If dom accounts are banned, what stops people from buying and storing as cash? I even believe people prefer to store in cash and other virtual means than in dom accounts

So it'll still continue... I love the way you laid out your points

the people who store large amounts of cash are usually people engaged in illegal activities….people whose monies are illicit. Many of those with dom accounts are hard working Nigerians who only use dom accounts because they are fearful of losing their entire net worth and life’s investment by investing in Naira assets. They’ve seen their parents work hard, build houses, buy shares only for those investments to be worth nothing upon retirement because they didn’t keep up with Naira devaluation over the years. For many a significant portion of their net worth is in their dom accounts because history has shown them that even if you don’t earn much in interest, you are better off than most who bought Naira property or shares and tell you their shares or property went up by xx%…until they convert to dollars and realize actually they lost money. . We are talking about enlightened people here, Such people are not going to keep their nest eggs in cash.

Managing the economy is more than fiscal and monetary manipulations. The key thing is productive economic activities.

- President Tinubu, please come back home sir. Nigeria needs a new economic foundation.
- Convoke a something like 'National Economic Conference' to develop a nationwide roadmap that will tap the economic potentials of geopolitical zones
- Set up a versatile economic think-tank and keep an open mind to their ideas. Look beyond Wale Edun and work with some crazy young minds to create out-of-box ideas for policies and programs.
- Develop short and long-term Economic and Development Plans and actively Implement it.
- Be positively strong-willed and don't sacrifice crucial things that MUST be done today for tomorrow's 2nd term. Nigerians will always appreciate positive results.
- Stimulate production in different aspects of the economy through incentives, make vital reforms of laws and processes, enthrone intentional concessions, etc.
- Move focus and relocate effort from attracting FDIs to encourage local industries, SMEs and entrepreneurs.
- Create more employments, boost local food production develop creative export drive strategies to earn forex.
you expect all these from corruption?

I hope for this administration's sake, all this talk about banning dom accounts is just that...talk and nothing more.

It will be a disaster if after failing to deliver on the promises they made, they have turned their attentions and their grubby, thieving fingers to the domiciliary accounts of people who had absolutely nothing to do with how we got here.

A very brilliant idea here
ojesymsym:
I am not a financial expert but I have noticed rather strangely that whatever USD amount is made available there are those with cash ready to buy them up. That is why CBN has been struggling to manage the high exchange rate situation.

So rather than try to fight a trend of this type, the CBN can try to turn things around such that people can buy USD from them but only with enaira or whatever digital currency CBN uses. From that point onward, any money that enters as a digital currency will now stay as a digital currency. With time, say about 8 months, a lot of the excess liquidity flying around will reduce and voluntarily find their way as digital currency.

With more people now having to use such digital currency, CBN will have better control over monetary policies. The security situation will also improve because not only will a lot more people start using digital currency for their day-to-day transactions, but cash will gradually begin to reduce, and ransom payment will also become more difficult. All BTA, PTA, Pilgrimage, Form M, or any request for forex will follow this route. It will also help to reduce round-tripping because after buying USD one time, the naira equivalent is now digital. You will from that point find it difficult to round trip since the trail will now be available. This will be far better than the haphazard approach that was used the last time that brought the economy down.

Another beauty of this is that, those kidnappers who for some reason I believe are also stocking USD will push their money indirectly into digital currency, How? you may ask considering that they use the black market for their transactions.

So, here is how even those who patronize the black market will also indirectly have their cash mopped up. For BDCs to also access USD, they will also have to exchange it with digital enaira, so that the money their customers pay to them will be entering the now-bostering enaira.

This is just a draft idea but I believe it can be tweaked further by those who are experts.

One temptation CBN should not fall for is to try to prevent those who legitimately have money in a dom account from accessing it or forcing them to take naira equivalent. It may sound good on paper but Lebanon and Argentina tried it but the result was disastrous.

Most of them are exactly like Dom account holders, some have been buying on the platform since it was below N1000/$ and they can now sell with over 50% profit now that it's close to 1500/$. I really can't tell how much of effect it has on the black market but it definitely has some effect
No the binance crypto rate don't have any effect

The thing is if FG decide to crash the rate to N500

The rate will instantly crash on the platform. The merchants there will have no other choice than to swallow the bitter pill of their loss.

Brainstorming to block the loopholes that agents of corruption and retrogression use to shortchange the system. In a country where banks were holding up $50billion in excesses for speculative purposes. A country with large deposits of Uranium yet the citizens take dollars to import phone and car batteries from the Chinese who come here to mine away our uranium. In a country where we have leather in abundance yet the people import shoes, a country blessed with textile but her people waste dollars importing fake fabrics. A country with crude at its backyard yet import fuel with subsidy. So much importation of junks and fake products with scarce resources while the local industries are left to rot. A country on self destruct peopled by the most greedy of human species.

Have you seen those spraying bales of dollars at parties?, the video is on Facebook.

I wish we could all decide to drastically reduce our taste for foreign goods.

Imported drinks, designer wear, luxurious cars, furniture, cosmetics, even toothpicks all require loads of forex. The truth is that if we concentrate our focus on patronising local producers more, they'll improve over time and we'll save more forex. Reno Omokri may sometimes sound like town crier, but he said as much. When given a deep thought, it's obvious that he's right.

It's not only importation, foreign school fees no be joke o.

Tinubu single handedly contributed to what made APC a possibility due to his selfish interest. The party he brought in power destroyed Nigeria to a stage where it wouldn't be possible for anybody to redeem it within a few years but now he has achieved his selfish aims and came to destroy it to be completely irredeemable. Nigeria is a lost hope. No single hope for this country as the destruction that Tinubu started with Buhari, he has come to complete

PDP was the reason I lost hope in this country, infact I was expecting what is happening now the way naira was depreciating against the dollar then, only I never expect the crash to be this hard now.
Some of my colleagues in the office fled to UK, I had no such luxury so I decided to learn forex trading, this is 2007, precisely 14 years ago.
If I can't enter obodo oyinbo, I should try to earn dollars in Nigeria.
Some of the people with whom I started the quest have abandoned the quest.
Today I'm happy because I didn't give up,
So don't come and tell me how it was very rosy under PDP government, for me it never was.

Brainless people brainstorming.

The irony is amusing.

Round these three dundees up and search their pockets while they "storm" their empty brains and you'll find some crispy Dollar or Pound sterling notes on them.

They still refuse to face reality and kiss the truth that the country's funeral arrangement is what is currently taking place.

Crude oil which used to be the country's major source of forex is currently no longer Nigeria's for the foreseeable future as it has been collateralized into the future against loans.

The creditors will keep lifting the crude for their country's use. One of the reasons Dangote had to source for his supply.

See their clueless faces..

Nigeria is multi-ethnic, yet, see the names of the people "brain-deading" to save it. How does this even make any sense to them?

Bring the policy on, and I as a different ethnic nationality and within the corridors of power will sabotage and ensure it doesn't see the light of day, no matter how lofty and nationalistic the plans are.

This is the true story of Nigeria.
