There have been calls for the cancellation of the 2023 presidential election over an alleged wide range of rigging and suppression of the true will of the people by governors and politicians across the country.
However, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, in the early hours of Wednesday declared the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Tinubu, winner of the polls.

Yakubu said that Tinubu polled a total of 8,794,726 to defeat his closest rivals and candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP who scored 6,984, 520 and 6,101,533, respectively.

“When some people say ‘my vote doesn’t count ‘ this is what they mean. Truly alarming with videos and pictures in polling units across Nigeria we still got here,” tweeted. This shouldn’t discourage ANYONE. A New Nigeria is possible as we can clearly see. Tinubu was handed his Certificate of Return by the INEC on Wednesday.

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.
