TopNaija understands that the Naira depreciated on Tuesday, crashing by 42 percent against the US dollar in the foreign exchange market in two days.

According to FMDQ data, the Naira fell to an all-time low of N1,482.57 per US dollar on Tuesday, down from N1,348.63 the previous day.

This equals a 9% decrease, or 133.94, compared to N1,348.63 at the conclusion of trade on Monday.

Omokri, who served as former President Goodluck Jonathan’s personal assistant, also said that the Naira reflects Nigerians.

He also chastised Nigerians for preferring foreign flights over Nigerian carriers that operate international routes.

“Look, the Central Bank of Nigeria just paid a billion dollars to foreign airlines. Those are airlines flying the same route as Air Peace,” he wrote on X.
“Do you know that if you and I, as Nigerians, had flown Air Peace instead of foreign airlines, that $1 billion would have stayed and circulated in Nigeria?
“And when dollars and pounds stay in Nigeria, the Naira rises in power. If they leave Nigeria, our Naira goes lower and lower.
“The Central Bank had to cough up $200 million to pay for human hair, as if God did not give our women hair. This is hair that Indian, Bangladeshi, and Southeast Asian women cut and dedicate to their temples.
“They then barely process the hair and label them Brazilian, European and Peruvian hair, and our women rush to buy them, wear them, and shake the hair angrily to accuse Tinubu of ruining the economy.
“If I were Tinubu, I would ban the importation of human hair. Fact-check this, as a nation, Nigeria spends more on human hair than on books.
“Containers on the high seas coming to Nigeria with things we can produce in Nigeria are killing the Naira…”
