7 Practicable Ways To Reduce Effect of Inflation on Nigerians

The rate of inflation in Nigeria is alarming. It’s beyond the data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). The prices of consumables in 2021 compared to 2019 price is an indication that the country is overwhelmed.

Officially, the inflation rate was 17.75% as of June 2021, a slight difference from May inflation, when it stood at 17.93%. To NBC, it’s a slight improvement, but in the real sense, the prices of rice, garri, and other foodstuffs continue to go up.

High food inflation stood at 21.83 percent in June, according to NBS

For instance, an egg at the time of compiling this report (July 22, 2021) was N60 compared to 2019, when an egg was N30. That’s an increment of 100% within a period of two years. It’s alarming!

So, what are the workable ways to reduce the effect of inflation on Nigerians? President Muhammadu Buhari says his masterplan can lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years, details of his plan is at: https://infomediang.com/buhari-lift-100million-nigerians-out-of-poverty

But to the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, LCCI, the APC-led government can reduce the effect of inflation of prices of goods and services on Nigerians by implementing actionable policies in some sectors of the country.

According to the Director-General of LCCI, Dr Muda Yusuf, three principal drivers of inflation included:

  • Cost-push factor
  • Supply chain disruptions
  • Monetization of fiscal deficit or inflation tax

Yusuf stated that the high energy cost, which included the spike in the cost of diesel, electricity and aviation fuel, high transportation and cost of logistics, and high import tariff as major cost push factor influencers.

Does Buhari Have The Capacity To Lift 100million Nigerians Out of Poverty

Does Buhari Have The Capacity To Lift 100million Nigerians Out of Poverty?

With more Nigerians sliding into poverty every day, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari says his 10-year master plan to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty would do the magic. Most farmers in the North have abandoned their farmlands due to disastrous attacks from Boko Haram terrorists,

How he plans to achieve the feat remained questionable as his government since assumption of office in May 2015 has pushed more Nigerians into poverty and joblessness, data don’t lie.

His N-Power programme is a brilliant idea, but the number of unemployed youth on the streets is overwhelming, more details about the SIP can be found at: https://infomediang.com/latest-n-power-news-nigeria

2015 vs 2021 Data

When the largest population is either unemployed or underemployed plus aggravated insecurity and wanton killings of citizens, which displaced millions, there will definitely be ‘hyper’ poverty. Security is key.

According to 2015 data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the unemployment rate in Nigeria rose to 9.9% in July-September from 8.2% in the second quarter, according to The Economist.

What makes this alarming is the fact that job creation in the third quarter of 2015 shows that Nigeria’s formal economy is failing to create many new work opportunities, instead some local firms who could not cope with insecurity closed shops or relocated to other African countries like Ghana and South Africa among others.

Although the NBS’s report shows that more jobs were created in the informal sector. It rose from 475,180 in July-September to 349,343 in the third quarter of 2014, 428,690. These were basically in agricultural production, but insecurity has made it worst.

Up from 23.1% in Q3 2018, Nigeria’s unemployment rate climbed to 27.1%, it has climbed to 32.5 percent at the time of publication (July 2021).

The figure is projected to increase further in 2022 as chronological data show that the unemployment rate in Nigeria has been rising constantly since 2015, says statista.com

Has The Social Intervention Programme Achieved Its Aims?

The first programme the APC-led government rolled out a few months after the assumption of office in 2015 was Social Intervention Programme (SIP) among which is N-Power Programme.

It was a temporary job opportunity for young Nigerian graduates. 200, 000 beneficiaries were shortlisted in 2016 and posted to various sectors, each of N-Power beneficiaries earned N30, 000 as a monthly stipend.

By 2017, another 300,000 beneficiaries were onboarded to reduce the level of unemployment among youth.

While it’s a brilliant initiative, it remains a drop of water in the ocean as Nigeria’s higher institutions continue to graduate thousands of Nigerians into the labour market every six months.
