With Christmas around the corner, many Nigerians now have their minds filled with thoughts of what they should include on their wishlists. They are hoping and praying that amidst the sufferings and grumblings, President Muhammadu Buhari, would give them a reason to smile again this festive season.
To know what the ordinary Nigerian really wants this Christmas, our Correspondent who took to the street gathered the following requests:
Prompt Payment of Salaries And Allowances
At the time of filing this report, most government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, MDAs, have not paid their workers’ November salaries, while some State Governments are owing more than 5 months salaries.
During interaction, most of the workers called on the Federal/State Governments, to offset their salaries, allowances, ‎and pension.
“We are demanding that our salaries and allowances be paid as at when due, so that we can carter for our homes.” Engr. Henry said.
Increase The Value Of The Naira
Recall, that President Buhari had promised during his Presidential campaign, to ensure that the Naira equates the dollar in value. Although, he is over year now in office, the Naira has drastically depreciated to an all time low to N480/$1.
‎Presently, the standard of living has generally gone beyond proportion, as imports are more expensive.
A large number of people are thus praying for a Christmas miracle, where the dollar will no longer be as high as N470 to $1 in the parallel market, but will normalize back to at least N180 to $1, as it was before Buhari took over power.
“The dollar has affected my business, because I spend trice the amount I used to, on purchase of goods.
“The most frustrating aspect of it, is that business turn out is so poor, because people are not buying, even as Christmas is just around the corner,” a Boutique owner lamented.‎


Reduction In The Cost Of Rice, And Other Food Items
Everybody knows that in Nigeria, Christmas is synonymous with eating rice. It is hard to find a home that does not prepare the delicacy on Christmas day, but with the current recession, the cost of rice has so escalated, that most of the citizens are finding it hard to buy much of the grain, as they would want.
Mrs. Emmanuel Jok, a housewife to a security guard in Gwarinpa, Abuja, who classified rice as a commodity for the rich, cried that the Government should do something about the high cost of rice, so that she and her son can enjoy this Christmas, despite the recession.‎
“Rice now na rich man food now. Before we dey buy 1 mudu for N300, but now na N700. Even local rice sef dey expensive. Abeg make Buhari do something about this rice wahala, because Christmas na rice people dey chop.”
Subsidize The Cost of Transportation
Every year during the festive period, transport companies hike their prices by almost 80 percent, because Nigerians have a must travel lifestyle, during this season.
However, the present economic quagmire, seems to have crippled the financial strength of Nigerians, as they have little or no interest of travelling to their various villages; the worst state of the nation, since 29 years.‎
Thomas, a Welder said, “Besides the cost of food items reducing drastically, I would also like the cost of transportation to decrease, so that I can go and see my poor mum in the village, whom I have not seen in a year.”
Stable Electricity Supply
Nigeria may have Kanji Dam, and numerous power stations around the nation, but even after over 50 years of independence, and oil boom, the country is still backwards when it comes to having stable power supply.
Coupled with this year’s harmattan, bringing more heat than cold dry wind, Nigerians are seriously hoping for a stable supply of electricity, so they do not have to pay much for fuel to run their generators this holiday.
“Abeg since government no fit make food cheap for us. Abeg make light dey, so that at least on xmas day, we go sit down watch film, and drink cold drinks,” a family man said.
