Tinubu, APC, the fall and fall of Naira, the weather and poverty in Nigeria

Nigeria has been dealing with a complicated web of issues lately, many of which seem to be connected to one another. The country’s politics, in particular the powerful Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is at the center of this puzzle. Being the C-I-C of the nation, BAT and his administration’s choices and actions have an impact on many aspects of Nigerian life and the economy, including governance and the value of the Nigerian Naira.

It is impossible to overestimate the relationship between politics and economy in Nigeria, where the national currency is greatly impacted by the policies of the government. The persistent devaluation of the Nigerian Naira relative to major international currencies is a reflection of both political unpredictability and economic ineptitude. The Naira is depreciating due to a lack of faith in the government’s capacity to steer the economy in the right direction, which exacerbates the situation of regular Nigerians who are trying to make ends meet. In addition, the widespread impact of corruption in the political system exacerbates economic problems and erodes public confidence, feeding the populace’s cycle of discontent and poverty.

Unpredictable weather patterns are one of the environmental elements contributing to Nigeria’s troubles, as they directly affect agricultural productivity, a crucial component of the country’s economy. Heat waves and other extreme weather events brought on by climate change interrupt agricultural, which lowers yields and increases food poverty. Rising food costs are putting pressure on household budgets and driving more Nigerians into poverty, which is having a nationwide ripple effect of these environmental concerns.

The interdependence of politics, economy, weather, and poverty highlights the necessity for all-encompassing and long-lasting solutions to Nigeria’s numerous problems. To execute reforms, support good governance, reduce climate change, and raise the most disadvantaged elements of society, political leaders, policymakers, and citizens must work together in concert. Nigeria cannot escape the grip of poverty and find a way to wealth and peace without concerted effort and well-timed initiatives.

It’s time for a change (Revolution)!!!
