The fluctuation of dollar to naira exchange black market has been static between 462 – 470 these days which is too high to be called a good exchange rate, Buying things with my Naira MasterCard is now a dream, I’d rather use Payoneer MasterCard.

Series of changes has occurred in Nigeria’s Economy and it’s affecting business owners and importers who rely solely on selling Imported Goods and Services, It’s of no more news that the three basic needs of life is now expensive in the country even the cost of living in the country has skyrocketed.


DateNaira Per Dollar
2002N99 – N106
2003N109 – N113
2004N114 – N127
2005N127 – N130

Furthermore, Looking at the charts of Naira to Dollar Exchange Rate from 1999 make me feel a little awkward. The naira has been a winning competitor against the dollar in the bye days, this time the economy is strong and we rely mostly on goods produced here.

Consequently from 1995-1999 it’s pegged at N21.89 but everything changed when year 2000 Kicked in, the dollar to naira exchange rate was called to be N85.98, In 2011 – 2014 dollar was exchanged for N150 – N153 and when 2015 / 2016 comes in naira dropped massively against dollar.


Looking at what causes this, I came to think that we rely mostly on importing than exporting goods, We rather export toothpick than to create it here in Nigeria, China, Japan and Italy has now been a forward factor when opting in for new products.

In other words, another factor that causes that influence the sudden fall of naira against dollar is Petroleum, Nigeria Main source of income is this, we believed so much in Petroleum and whenever this resource price fall at the world market, Nigeria Naira would follow it.

Nigeria is country blessed with Agriculture Products, Technology is growing faster in the country and we are still developing, If Nigeria can leverage selling Agricultural Products combined with Petroleum, It would be a success for the country.

In short form Nigeria seeks for more dollars compared to naira this is caused by massive importation of Product. To solve this we need to export more products out of the country than importing.
