All The Products You Can Buy In Nigeria To Improve The Value Of The Naira

February 17, 2016
The value of the naira is free falling and it’s scary to think of how far it might fall before it’s stabilized. There’s a legit fear that Nigeria will become the new Zimbabwe if care is not taken.
But Nigerians who follow history have known for a long time that the wise move would have been to diversify our economy and not depend solely on crude oil as our main export product. And this should have been done a long time ago.
Well, it seems that Nigerians have had a “crude” awakening with the recent ridiculous drop in oil prices, as well as the depreciation in the value of the Naira and have shared the different steps we can take by buying made-in-Naija products to grow the naira.

From the simple things that will go a long way.

To patronizing Nigerian startups and businesses.

To taking vacations closer to home.

And actually doing something.

But then again, we have to do better and produce quality products.

So we can be proud enough to do this.
