Catholic Priest Gives Reasons For Naira’s Woeful Fall

The Parish Priest of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church, Gold and Base, Rayfield, Jos, Plateau State, Rev. Fr. Joseph Agbazi, has given the reason for the continuous crumbling of the naira before the dollar.

He gave the reason while addressing the members of his congratulation in the state.

Fr. Agbazi said that the rise in use of foreign goods was one of the major factors responsible for the constant fall in the value of the nation’s currency.

The priest also called on Nigerians to use the naira instead of dollars in carrying out transactions within the country.

”Nigerians must let go of foreign products and buy local cars, clothes, shoes, building materials and other goods to grow our naira.

”We must also avoid the use of dollars or other foreign currency to do transactions within the country; let’s use the naira in all our dealings.

“That way, our local currency will appreciate and our economy will be better,” Agbazi added.

Agbazi further admonished politicians to jettison the act of greed and make use of the nation’s God-given resources to provide the desired development to Nigerians.

He called on the government to invest more in the education sector, insisting that such a move would improve the quality of lives in the nation.

“Our political class must push greed away and give way for development.

“Let us make our education sector better in order to attract foreign teachers and students into the country,” Agbazi said.
