We asked a couple of Nigerians from varying backgrounds what they’d do with a million naira. Here are some of what they said:
“First of all, I’m going to be needing 5k suya so that I can think straight. In addition to Tozo.”
2) Jay/Mid-twenties/Occupation is unknown.
“What can you do with it? The currency is so shitty that it’s not that much.”
3) Adeyinka/24/Youth Corps Member.
“I’m going to enter Coldstone and ask them to close the door…Their daddy.”
4) Abu/Mid-twenties/Occupation is unknown.
“I’ll buy 10k suya first, cold Lacasera for side, then I can now think of what to do next.”
“Eko Idumota straight. I’ll go and buy goods for my shop because that money will change my life.”
6) Wale/28/Health Care Worker.
“I’ll use it to buy more dollars while working towards a life with better currencies.”
7) Kunbi/25/Health Care Worker.
“Shopping spree. I’m lying if I say I’ll save it. Abeg make I take care of myself because problem no dey finish. I need to update my wardrobe because a girl needs to slay. I need clothes, I need hair, I need to look fine for myself so that I can gas myself up. That’s the kind of feeling I need right now.”
8) Victor/25/Health Care Worker.
“I’ll save it and use it for japa. As it stands, I need times six of that for my plans and one million naira doesn’t even begin to cut it. Maybe I’ll put it inside MMM and be hopeful.”
I’d buy like ₦50.000 worth of sunscreen and save the rest. To be honest, the exchange rate won’t allow the money to be useful so I’ll buy some foreign currency and wait.”
“I’d quit my 9-5 and use the soft landing from the money to focus on freelancing. I’ve been delaying quitting for a long time because I don’t have a safety net.”
Names have been changed to keep them anonymous.
