Here are a few reasons why the pound to naira conversion rate is declining.
1.Rates of inflation: It is common knowledge that inflation has a direct impact on exchange rates on the black market. The naira will gain if the Nigerian economy can be stabilized and inflation is kept under control; however, if the naira keeps falling, it might mean that food and other needs are getting more expensive on a daily basis.
2.Interest Rates: Monitoring interest rates is a further strategy. A rise in the interest rate at which banks lend money would be detrimental to the economy, cause it to contract, and consequently lower the value of the naira.
Government Debt: A country's level of debt may have an effect on investor
confidence and, consequently, the flow of money into the economy. If inflows are substantial,
the currency rate will move in the naira's favor.
Speculators: Speculators routinely affect the exchange rate between the naira and the pound. They accumulate funds in anticipation of a profit, which pushes the value of the naira further lower.
Conditions of Trade: Although Nigeria is currently running a trade deficit, favorable trade terms will raise the value of the naira relative to the pound. China, India, and the majority of Asian nations are the source of everything.
