Peter Okoye of P-Square

Peter Okoye of P-Square music band has sent out a message to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi and members of the Obidient movement after their defeat in the 2023 presidential election. Mr. Okoye, in a message he shared via his Twitter handle on Wednesday evening, called for calm among supporters, urging them to give room for peace.

Obi came third in the election, according to the results read out by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu on Wednesday morning. Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC polled a total of 8,794,726 to defeat his closest rivals and candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar and Obi who scored 6,984, 520 and 6,101,533 respectively.

There are rumours of plans for a massive protest across the country over the results released by INEC, which many electorates believe are different from what happened at the polling units across the country on Saturday.

There is also anger over INEC’s failure to use the BVAS and transmit results from the polling units to its portal. Dear H.E @PeterObi your mandate can only be delayed, but cannot be denied. Please, my fellow obedient, be calm, we live to fight another day, so please embrace peace. Let’s all allow the right people of the law to handle the case. Thank you Nigerians

Nigerian government benefiting from dollar-to-Naira increase – Senator Ndume

Published

on

Senator Ali Ndume

Senator Ali Ndume says the federal government is not losing out from the naira depreciation against the dollar but gaining more revenue to fund its 2024 budget. Ndume explained that the 2024 budget, which was presented last November, is a ‘dollarized’ budget in terms of income, as most of the government’s revenue comes from crude oil exports, which are priced in dollars.

Speaking during an interview with Channels Television monitored by DAILY POST, Ndume noted that as the value of the dollar increased, the government would have more naira to spend on its expenditure, which is denominated in naira.He further stated that Nigeria’s major product, crude oil, is still in high demand in the global market, stressing that the country would benefit from the current dollar-to-naira exchange rate.

“Don’t forget that this budget is a ‘dollarized’ budget, especially in terms of income. And when it comes to the terms of the expenditure, it’s in naira. So if we are getting our money in dollars and the value of the dollar is up, that means we will have more naira in terms of what we spend because we are not spending in dollars, we are spending in naira, while we are getting our revenue in dollars.

“Truly, the value of naira against the dollar has fallen but we are selling our major product that generates income in dollars. And that means any dollar we get now will also be valued at the current dollar-to-naira exchange rate.

“So if you do the analysis critically, it may mean if you balance it up, we may have more money to fund our budget. So technically, Nigeria is even benefiting from the dollar-to-naira hike,” he added.
