Senates rallies round as Naira rebounds to 1,275/$ at parallel market

Worried by another round of naira depreciation at the forex market, the Senate through its Committee on Finance has called for concerted efforts by all relevant stakeholders to rescue and sustain its stability.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Chairman of the Committee, Senator Sani Musa ( APC Niger East), said there was an urgent need for concerted efforts at tackling the instability and continuous depreciation of the Naira.

He said, “The recent depreciation of the Naira underscores the need for proactive measures to safeguard the stability and resilience of our currency.

“The Nigerian economy is facing significant challenges, exacerbated by both internal and external factors.

“Despite efforts to stabilize and bolster economic growth, the numerous initiatives and bold but necessary steps and policy decisions taken by President Bola Tinubu, the persistent depreciation of the Naira against major foreign currencies has become a pressing concern.”

“The recent depreciation of the Naira underscores the need for proactive measures to safeguard the stability and resilience of our currency,” the Senate finance chairman lamented.

Senator Musa added, “The Senate Committee on Finance is closely monitoring the situation and is committed to working collaboratively with relevant stakeholders to implement effective policies and strategies.

“It is imperative that we address the root causes of Naira depreciation, including but not limited to fluctuations in global oil prices, fiscal deficits, and structural imbalances in the economy.

“The Senate Committee on Finance is exploring a range of policy options to mitigate the impact of Naira depreciation and foster economic stability.”

“This includes robust oversight of fiscal policies, engagement with key stakeholders, and the formulation of targeted interventions to support key sectors of the economy.

“It is also the hope of the committee that our economic managers will adhere strictly to the norms and standards set by this administration to ensure that we achieve the desired outcomes in taking Nigeria to its economic growth and prosperity.

“As we navigate these uncertain times, I urge all Nigerians to remain vigilant and resilient. Together, we can overcome the challenges facing our economy and chart a path towards prosperity for all”
