He surveys a property worth buying in the new Ibeju lekki development area. It cost NGN11.99 million to be paid in a 24 months instalment. Tife Adenike earns about 4.2 million per annum. He estimates that he can save 1 million every year, increase his level of earning,  and buy a house in 5 years.

Tife has a plan, he is pumped up, and decides to create a monthly budget for his expenses and saving plans. Here’s what his budget look like;

Food and eating out : 100,000

Transport and uber: 50,000

Commitment & Giving: 50,000

He saves about  85,000 in his savings account and the rest of the money he uses to settle miscellaneous deals here and there.

In 2021, the prices of groceries and costs skyrocketed so much, it was cutting into his savings. 1.2 million save, cannot cover his payment plan for the property. In one year, coupled with the depression and the charges, his savings are not up to the payment plan.

Naira in the Mud…

The annual inflation of the naira is at 15%, the value of the currency halves every six years. According to Stears Business. This means any returns from savings, investment or equity in the naira is defeated by double-digit inflation. This is what happens when you have a currency constantly sinking like it is being dumped in a quicksand 

What Does This Mean For You…

Keeping funds in a savings or fixed deposit account in naira is not likely to buy you the house of your dreams. It is like running against the wind, as your funds, and even interest accrued is not enough to beat the inflation rate and depreciation of the naira.
