President Bola Tinubu’s administration expects a stronger Naira by the first quarter of 2025, following successful interventions in the foreign exchange market and the resumption of full refinery operations.

Ngelale emphasized that the administration’s revitalization efforts in the foreign exchange market are focused on bolstering the Naira’s position in currency markets. However, he cautioned that recent progress alone is insufficient, stressing the need for sustained policies and initiatives to fortify the Naira.

Highlighting the impact of refinery operations, both public and private, reaching full capacity within the stated timeframe, Ngelale predicted a stronger Naira that would positively affect market commodity prices.

President Tinubu’s strategy, according to Ngelale, aims to reward the Nigerian people for their sacrifices and resilience over the past months. The administration’s comprehensive approach in cleansing the foreign exchange market of unethical practices has laid the groundwork for a sustainable strengthening of the Naira against global currencies.

Ngelale acknowledged that while progress is evident, there is no room for complacency. He stressed the importance of continuous efforts to combat inflation and ensure fair pricing of goods and services based on prevailing exchange rates.

Anticipating a significant cash inflow as refineries ramp up operations, Ngelale expressed optimism about the Naira’s prospects. He underscored the potential impact of increased consumer spending power and the availability of credit on bolstering Nigeria’s real sector, echoing confidence in President Tinubu’s economic leadership and its expected benefits by the end of his first term in office.
