Activist, Aisha Yesufu, has decried the alarming spike in the dollar to naira exchange rate, complaining that the government’s policies are not aligning, but “haphazard”.
“In terms of nation building, in a situation like this, it is understandable if you are having hardship because if you need to take certain decisions it must come with hardship but when you are having hardship with no clear cut plans, the policies are not aligning, they are just haphazard, then you are in a bigger problem” the activist said in a video she posted.
A dollar is currently being exchanged for N920 at the parallel market.
In a video she posted, Aisha said that some people claimed that they ‘’dodged a bullet” but instead ended up with a ‘’nuclear blast”.
She blamed the government on the challenge which she linked to its policies.
The activist said: ‘’Life comes hard to everyone. You do anyhow, you see anyhow.
“They said they escaped the bullet, now they found themselves in a nuclear blast.
“Dollar is heading to N1000. I will just tweet it then.
“I would say the way we are going, we might find ourselves at N2000.
“That is when some people will now say ‘’May be Buhari was not that bad since the other one was based on how much a dollar is’.
“In Nigeria, the way to be competent is to ensure the person after you is worse.
“That is how will do it”.
