Nigerians experience the most expensive Valentine ever 

As Nigerians gear up to celebrate the season of love, the economic backdrop casts a rather unromantic shadow over Valentine’s Day this year.

With inflation rates soaring, exchange rates depreciating, and the removal of fuel subsidies, the cost of showing love has never been this pricey. Love, they say, is free, but expressing it, it appears, requires a deeper pocket than ever before. 

Inflation has been an unwelcome third wheel in many Nigerian relationships, and this year it’s determined to crash Valentine’s Day as well.
