Analysts at Afrinvest Securities Limited said, “it is likely that the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) inflow has been received as the foreign exchange reserves added $780m between August 24 and September 9, 2021 and as such, the foreign reserves should stay afloat for the most part of September, barring a major outflow”.
These Analysts are of the opinion that Nigeria’s currency is not the main cause of inflation. According to them, findings show that a 10 percent depreciation of the Naira within one year would only push inflation up marginally by 0.34 percent but if the unofficial market exchange rate reduces by 10 percent, from N530/US$ to N583/US$ then this will cause inflation from 17.38 percent to 17.72 percent”.
