The Naira To Dollar Exchange Rates From 1972-2017 Will Surely Leave You Speechless

The Naira To Dollar Exchange Rates From 1972-2017 Will Surely Leave You Speechless
Who did this to Nigeria? I long stopped blaming our former leaders, knowing fully well that the earliest ones actually tried for our country, and they couldn't have still been in power now.
I was working on a project and had to take a peep into the Nigeria's exchange rate and how it gradually depreciated, and I cannot but wish the worst on whoever joined in doing this to us.
We moved from the exportation of agricultural products to to importation of everything we need. No one seems to care, and according to worldpoverty.io, it is estimated that in 2030, Nigeria might go into extreme poverty.

Of course that isn't news since we are completely dependent on crude oil as our major (if not only) exportation.
The politicians aren't helping matters, as they are gradually looting the country to penury. What about you as a youth? Are you even taking any steps to better our dear country?
Well, let's look at the economy and how it gradually moved from the top to where we are now.
