Reasons Why Naira Currency Value Is Suffering Against Euros
1. NIGERIA DEPENDS HUGELY ON IMPORTATION
Nigeria is a consumer country that depends mainly on imported goods and services and this has really affected the currency negatively. In contrary, the country exports just a few fraction of its products especially crude oil.
2. OVER DEPENDENCY ON OIL EXPORT REVENUE
Nigerias major exporting prowess is from oil neglecting other resources that can be harnessed for commercial and exportation purposes to diversify the wailing economic. The over dependence on income gotten from oil has degraded the Naira in one way or the other. Now with the falling price of oil in the global market as oil had been discovered in other parts of the world, the value of Naira would continue to fall with response to the fall of the oil price except if we diversify our economy.
3. THE EXCESSIVE DEMAND FOR FOREIGN CURRENCIES IN THE COUNTRY.
This is, in fact, one of the primary reasons why Naira is losing it value in the world market. Some businesses in Nigeria now prefer to collect their charges in foreign currencies like the dollars, pounds or euros rather than the currency of the land. This act though frowned upon by the Government, Nigerians still practice it, and this had in turn been the reason for the declining value of Naira.
4. OBSESSION FOR FOREIGN PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Many Nigerians prefer foreign goods and services to our local products and services. Name it is it education, construction, writings or what have you, this single act had strengthened the foreign currency against our own Naira.
5. LOOTING OF PUBLIC FUND
Over the years, government officials had looted our public fund and instead of them to invest this to at least better the economy, they take this money to foreign countries. This had not helped the Naira.
6. LOST TRUST IN THE ECONOMY
Political instability, skewed government policies, terrorism, and other vices had made many foreign, and even local investors lost interest in the country’s economy, this in itself had devalued the Naira.
The 6 points listed above are some of the major reasons why euro to naira exchange rate in black market today is very high
It is crucial we try our best to stop the Naira from devaluation to protect our dignity and respect as a country by encouraging more of exportation, consumption of local goods and services and prevention of public officers from looting our national funds.
