That's very expensive as a Volkswagen cost about #1,500 back then and a station wagon Peugeot was going for #5,000.


The cost of a Volkswagen Beetle was N3,908 (nearly N4,000) in 1982 at the very popular J. Allens which was the car sales division of John Holt back then. That was where my fam got a brand new VW Igala in 1978.

That means the total cost of wedding ceremony then can't be more than N2,000.

The minimum wage in 1982 was NGN3.35( 3 naira and 35 kobo)... the hall was 500 naira (multiple of almost 150 of minimum wage)
The minimum wage today is N30k ...I am not sure 4.5million naira will get you the same venue today

That 500 naira can buy a car then

That #500 can't buy 2 soft drink in present Nigeria now grin

First start by comparing exchange rate now against then...!

How many Nigerians had access to #500 in 1982?!! What's the equivalent of that amount today after compulsorily adjusting for inflation?!!


That's how you make comparisons.

Minimum wage in 1982 was about N125.

Stop all these comparing and contrasting. #500 in the year 1982 is a very big amount of money, as a child, I could remember around the year 2000 or 2001, we were usually given 50kobo, 1 naira, 5 naira, highest is #10 to school, every day. #200 is a very big amount of money then, talkless of 1982.

i know the government have been a mess but lets look at it critically. 500 naira that year has the same purchasing power as about 4 million to 4.5 million today and that will also buy you a car.In 1982 it would take a minimum wage earner 149 months to earn 500naira, Today in 149 months a minimum wage earner would have earned almost 4.5million naira, this is also enough to buy a car.
Although there are other things to the equation that will make it more difficult to have 4.5m today compared to having 500naira in 1982 but if we look at the face value of the 500naira in 1982 and 4.5m in 2024, u really wont say there is much difference

I largely agree with this summation. A VW Beetle was N3908 (almost N4000) at the car sales division of John Holt Ltd back in 1982.

Ok.

But that still makes renting that hall space relatively very expensive .

After wedding reception, you go home with your tear rubber (virgin) wife, not these fairly and roughly used (non-virgins) of nowadays. When you get home, una go enjoy unaselves and you go dey happy ever after. The #500 no go pain you lailai because the partner wey you meet worth the money. Imagine been the first to drive a car, not fairly used we see everywhere nowadays.
Anyways, what do I even know sef aside enlightening my fellow men nationwide with the good news.

Volkswagen beetle was 4500 naira and not 1500, that was the amount my father bought his in 1987. He wanted to buy Peugeot 504 but was told the amount was 5,500 naira so he went for Volkswagen.

Not much different from today, since at
the time N500 was around 💲500 and I'm sure that today, same venue can still be hired for 💲500 or something close..


The only difference today is, una naira
na dead currency.. 😐😐😐😐

Exactly! N500 rental for the hall at Eko Club was indeed VERY expensive back then like I also stated in my first post on page 1 of this thread. I remember that N20 could buy a lot of foreign and Nigerian-manufactured things at any Kingsway Department Stores outlets or any of the other 2 competing Department Stores such as Leventis and UTC as of 1982.

Globally, inflation has eaten deep into the purchasing power of a lot of folks and prices of goods and services have relentlessly changed over the last 100 years of consumerism.

Goddammit why are Nigerian men so freaking hang up about marrying a Virgin, when they themselves are so fu*king removed from being a virgin.

probably cuz they are the ones doing the spending and in charge of the responsibilities.. so cut them some slack until there is gender equality in that aspect
