We will wake up one day and the naira will be N1,000’ – Governor Obaseki ECONOMY‘We will wake up one day and the naira will be N1,000’ – Governor Obaseki Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has raised an alarm over the state of Nigeria’s economy and country’s rising debt profile. According to him, borrowing money to meet the country’s ailing economic needs is no longer tenable. The Governor spoke on Wednesday during a meeting with the Transition Committee members at the Government House in Benin. “In another year or so, where will we find this money that we go to Abuja to share every month? Last month, we got FAAC for March. The Federal Government printed an additional ?50 to ?60 billion to top-up for us to share,” he said. “We say remove subsidy, they say no. This April, next week again, we will go to Abuja and share. By the end of this year, the total borrowing is going to be in excess of ?15 to ?16 trillion. “My worry is that we will wake up one day like Argentina, the naira will be ?1,000, ?2,000 and will be moving because we don’t have money coming in. You are just borrowing, borrowing and borrowing without any means or idea of how to pay back.” he said
