‘Mr. President, you are wrong on the regulation of domiciliary accounts in Nigeria’- PDP

Press statement from the PDP below...
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to bring to the notice of President Buhari that the apparent absence of an economic team in the third month of his administration is leading the country into economic quagmire and doldrums. In the past, we had given examples of the devastating effect of lack of an economic team and a clear-cut fiscal policy by this administration as evidenced in the lull and painful decline in the stock market, spiral rate of inflation, the disastrous outing of the government team in bilateral talks during the recent visit to the United States of America and the shambolic state of our economy at present.
This confusion has been extended to operations and regulations of the foreign exchange transactions in Nigeria wherein the government is making it impossible for honest Nigerians to engage in free trade and regulate their personal activities as guaranteed by the constitution, and this is clearly an agenda to illegally impose a communist economic regime on Nigerians.

In a desperate attempt to create a semblance of movement out of the clearly motionless and stoic state of affairs of this government, they have reeled out bans and complete clampdown on free trade. One begins to wonder therefore whether we are not heading back to the era of import duty licenses and regulation of commodity prices. The most disturbing aspect of this communist economic agenda is the illegal and unlawful attempt to repeal the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Monitoring And Miscellaneous Provisions Act, otherwise known as Decree No 17 of 1995 and replace it with unilateral imposition of new regulations.

This Act remains the subsisting law regulating the operations of domiciliary accounts in Nigeria and by its provisions therefore, Nigerians are empowered to freely open and operate domiciliary accounts. As such, any enactment and or regulation inconsistent with the provisions of this Act are deemed void. Thus, the recent foreign exchange transaction restrictions by this government are illegal, unlawful and void. Besides the provisions of the law, the PDP declares this administration’s archaic communist economic agenda as unworkable and unsustainable.

Finally, we wish to remind Mr. President that this is 2015 and not 1984; we remind him that trade and import restrictions are archaic and outdated; and we remind him that we are practicing a proper democracy and not the dictatorship of the politburo under a communist regime.

Signed; Chief Olisa Metuh
National Publicity Secretary

What benefit did the forex window do to Nigerian economy under GEJ other than to enrich the cabals. I'm sure Metuh is now crying because dollar is no longer available to him to galanvant with or maybe he's doing so on behalf of his cohorts. Yeye dey smell

When your tap floods your house, you turn it off to clean up the water on the floor before opening it again. It's common sense. There's too much USD in the market and it's causing our Naira value to drop.

    Buhari's ideas are obsolete and should not be used if Nigeria want to move forward. Instead of appointing intelligent ministers that will handle national affairs,that dull old man is trying to run a cow government. It's indeed a pity, exchange rate is geting worse by the day because of the clueless old travelling COW we have as a president. Buhari and APC members are busy looting,yet they keep on disturbing public peace with PDP's loot when they are the same.

    The crowd here in LIB is lacking in intellectual depth. When someone (usually the first person) writes a negative opinion about the PDP, a bandwagon of uninformed persons especially mallams and lazy Yorubas will join in to rehash the same shameless abuses on Olisa Metuh without addressing the issues raised. That is why it is not good to only go to school but allow the school to pass through you. I will be surprised if any university graduate worth his certificate will join a bandwagon led by a bricklayer who happens to have a smart phone to lead discussions on LIB.

    It is crunch time now. Elections are over and this is the time to ask questions. For instance, is it proper for economic policies affecting the lives of millions of Nigerians to be decided on a dinner table by one man and his faceless economic advisers? PMB is not the embodiment of all knowledge. He is an old man, who by his own admission has memory problems and so prone to making errors of judgement. His policies so far are harming the economy. The policies belong to the ancient past when there was no globalisation. There are thousands of Nigerians earning legitimate income from online business. The exchange rate is spiralling out of control and affecting them. Inflation is taking its toll leading to capital flight as witnessed in the stock market. THESE ARE FACTS. It is the reality. These issues are beyond politics. So I give kudos to Olisa Metuh for the constructive criticisms so far. We need this type of opposition to keep the government in check and force them to reconsider inimical policies. We should resist every attempt to send us back to 1983-84.

    Olisa Metuh, keep it up. Don't be distracted by anybody.

    There is a Form A for payment of invisible goods. Get the form from your bank and use it in paying such directly by use of your Naira account. The Ban is temporary. It will reduce banks profit and that is why they are making this noise.

    It is so sad that PDP chose to play on sentiments rather than make a logical argument to this policy directive. A counter argument based on economic policy and economics would have made them appear more credible anf highlighted the fault in their thinking.
    I am not an economist but what the CBN has directed makes perfect common sense. If banks reject the dollar that means people would no longer need to buy dollars and create artificial scarcity means that the black market price of dollar will go down.
    And for those who claim they want to use it to pay children school fees or do business transaction, what happened to online banking or transfers? and use of ATM while abroad? it is only illegitimate business people that will object to this.
    Obviously this policy has worked because the dollar has tumbled from 245 to 220 as at friday. PDP shame!

    Please don't shoot the messenger. There is a valid point to his message. A lot of people just come onto blogs and post idiotic responses to posts without fully understanding what is being discussed. How do law abiding citizens of Nigeria trade freely in the free market now? Is what PMB has done legal?? We should learn to question everything intelligently without being partisan. Yes, we ought to be patient as Nigerians to see what direction this new administration is taking us, but must they kill the economy completely in order to put things right??? All these archaic unilateral policies are ruining us please! Appoint your economic advisers quickly and stop treating Nigerians with disdain. We really don't give a toss which party is in power, at the end of the day what we want as a people is decent country to live in where, inflation is low, cost of funds is reasonable and the exchange rate is low too. Is that to hard to ask??? Abeg, pity the Nigerian people. The last Government was voted out because we want a better life. What we I getting right now is unnecessarily prolonged agony!!!!

    THIS TIME AROUND PDP IS RIGHT. The new CBN strict policy on foreign exchange will hit hard on the Nigerian Economy. This hampers free trades. Despite having a good intention, it should not come like this. It will affect many business in Nigeria, some will close down and unemployment will increase. I don't have time to explain in details but such implementation should be gradual

    The ripple effect continues because, if you are not paying attention, simply look at your spending pattern in the last couple of months. I was chatting with an employee who told me that for the past one year, the family has been unable to afford to buy meat so they resorted to fish (and not the expensive one). Now she says they cannot even find fish to buy talk less of been able to afford whatever they find. I noticed this myself when I bought one piece (not a whole) of croaker fish for 600 naira and a medium basket of tomatoes now sells for over 35,000 naira!

    Think about the thousands of legitimate transactions that occur on a daily basis requiring forex payment only for everything to be put to a halt without notice in a single day. Business cannot pay for needed materials to function. No products manufactured and thus no sales (while business is also incurring debt). No sales means no money to pay salary. No salary means workers are unable to sustain themselves and their families. No money to buy anything means local sellers loose customers and have no income, and on it goes.

    You may not like the messenger in this article, but I urge you to look at the message critically. Which country in their right mind makes such an arbitrary financial dictate without any logical explanation?

    Another example, have you ever asked yourself or any banker for that matter of what use is the BVN? Various punitive measures (money making for the banks) were put in place to frog march us towards a so-called cashless economy ( I cannot begin to describe the number of times I have been embarrassed by a POS nor can I explain why a Diamond Bank POS will not accept a Zenith bank card because of some unknown ongoing feud between these 2 banks. In essence, I make sure I carry both cash and card. And of course just like with cell phones, business better make sure they have more than one POS machine!.

    When I ask bankers of what purpose is the BVN, they say its to enhance safety so that when I come into a bank for a transaction, my finger print will ensure that I am the one. Which is of course asinine (stupid and idiotic to say the least) because one of the goals of a more cashless economy is to reduce the agonizing trips to the banks! I have never heard of this sort of finger printing in relation to bank accounts done in any part of the world! If indeed our banks are evolving and I can complete most if not all my transactions online, what exactly is the finger print needed for?

    What is needed here is a hard look at the facts and a non-biased opinion whether for or against of this policy.

    I think what is disheartening, apart from the fact that such government policies may create more problems for our economy, is the knowledge gap amidst the youth, the so called leaders of tomorrow. it is pathetic and sad. due to the brain drain educational system which most of us have come through, we barely know anything about our economy, much less understand it. The lesson I am taking from all this, is that those of us that know and understand must come together and try our best to make things right. we cannot blame those that do not know. Their ignorance is their saving grace. But for those who have an inclining for knowledge (citizen x and etc) the burden of using this knowledge to set things straight should not be ignored. words wont save us. only decisive enforced action will. May God help us. #speedupafrica @speedupafrica

    Olisa Metu, have you forgotten that you were one of the core members of PDP(people destroy people) who have ruined the economy of this nation Nigeria,I remembered vividly that you and madam Iweala told the current CBN Gov to devalue our currency so that you and your co-evil doers coud still enough money and for the proper rigging of the 2015 general election. But God is bigger than all of you. Olisa Meta, you will always love to regret any action or comments made against Buhari. Leave the innocent man our honest President alone. And you must vommit all what you have stealing.

    Please explain how the dollar will fall while naira increases in value when it's just been devalued with a possibility that it will fall further to get to its right value?

    How does the new policy help the exchange rate? What you people fail to understand is that the policy is only helping black market thrive. All those that bought dollars before elections are now selling at exorbitant rates because you can't get them from banks. For example, the bank can't give you more than 5k dollars for school fees per term. Please which University outside the country has fees that low? Parents still go to black market to source for dollars to pay their children 'so fees. They still give fuel importers millions of dollars to import and then make you and I resort to black market but like everything in Nigeria, people will shoot the messenger instead of analyzing the facts presented.

    Real illustrates. Believing whatever they are fed without questions on how it will be achieved. Are they aware that companies got exemptions to continue charging dollars in Nigeria? That is the reason politicians will promise them heaven on earth and they never ask them how they will achieve it. No to come to blogs and wait for giveaway after giving away their mandate like zombie.

    The official rate for dollar still remains 198 though it fluctuates down a bit some days. Black market rates are Not the rates used. It's the scarcity imposed by the policies that made it shoot up to 250. Demand and supply.

    This just shows how much you people know and you'll be posting rubbish with confidence and even cursing the guy when you have no clue. Please spend some of your data reading and developing yourself.
