Business!it went down drastically.esp in the month of August. Have never witnessed a rough month like that for a veery looking time now. I still thank God I m alive and breathing fine with my family
The exchange rate is so bad. When we travelled last xmas, had to change a pound for 390 and I was complaining bitterly,as of yesterday, a pound was over 570... na to sit down for abuja this year... it's so disheartening. .we need a miracle .Meanwhile everything in the market is now so expensive . From butter to flour to eggs. Sugar is even worse. May God grant buhari and all Nigerians the grace to get our economy back on track .
Generally the cost of living in Nigeri has increased. But it really doesnt make much difference for me na the same struggle and hustle i dey, Buhari or no Buhari God pass devil!
It is well.
Times are hard, this man is the worst president, if u ever voted for Buhari u need plenty slaps
There was a turn around in my family during the Buhari tmies...when others shall say there is a casting down, we shall say there is a lifting up. I Bless God for his mercies.
A cup of rice went from 60 to 140A bottle of palmoil from 200 to 400A bottle of vegetable oil from 250 to 500Spaghetti from 120 to 200And so on...Thank God we don't have to pay for Oxygen.
Stella hmmmm I no fit shouts ooooo ever thing is bad from food to light is like l go carry my gana must go leave this country man don tire.
It's so tight for me, because anyone I asked for an assistant on a job always tells me I wish they can, and haven't gotten finance yet to start up my business, every complaining buhari time is hard no money.
Buhari is bad luck ,synonymous with hardship
I couldn't travel. Mtchewww

It is well sha... Buhari is not the problem, the problem is dat we in the Endtimes and Rapture is imminent.... The Second Coming of Christ will not pass year 2030 maximum... This is just the beginning, the world is in for some rude shock and suffering but the children of God wont be affected... Rapture is near.. idikwa holy? If not, nke gi ekpomee....
As long as there is God is children most survive, times are hard no doubts but na same hustle and struggle we dey, looking up to baba God alone and not Buhari
We will survive
In short they should bring back our Nigerian kwarruption. Everything is going up up up.I just pity people who are not working because we that are working are feeling the heat.
The cost of living is now so so expensive... Everything has added money.. God save us
Abi oooo. Mama Afrika. Na Baba God hands we dey oooo. Na his way sure pass
one congo of rice is now 600naiara! Buhari God pass you
Pele young woman, God will fix your business. You need to help yourself because you seem to have too much time on your hands for a serious minded person. Stop rubbing shoulders with the women on this blog, you are supposed to be a man.
I lost my job, no thanks to Buhari times.It's not been easy, I have never been this idle all my life. It's just a month but it seems like it's a year already. Getting frustrated...On a lighter note, I need a sugar daddy. A very wealthy, almost dying man. His children must be very rich and based abroad.Thank you...
All foodstuffs are now times 2/3, what they were before, Is only God
It's like living a nightmare. Food and drug prices are going up every week, salaries are the same and to crown it all up, people are losing their jobs
It is well. Complaining has never helped.
Everything Stella, everything. The cost of living has skyrocketed.Small sachet butter of 20naira is now 40naira..Sure deodorant of 700 is now 1,300 in my neighbourhood store. Only God can pull us out of this quagmire.
Things went from bad to worse for my family, mum who works in a daycare was only paind half salary since there weren't infants to take care of during the holidays. Younger sister who attends a public school now have to pay 8K as against 5K they were paying before they went for the long holiday. I on my side just managing menial jobs around, proceed from it is what we use to feed. Abeg jare I just tire.
I'm hopeful because I serve a Living God
The price of bags of coconut keep increasing daily
God knowest all ooo
My buhari times..hmmm rivers state govt has still refused to pay us since february till now, My daughter hasn't gone to school since the session started.. oma se o...I don message stella taya for school fees giveaway, she no dey respond...there is God o I just hope it gets better...
I am someone that used to have a reasonable amount of money stashed aside for the rainy day but now story has CHANGED. This Buhari time, savings is no more. I am now someone that waits for my monthly money. My savings got spent fast due to rise in standard of living, my salary slashed at different times, the rate of people coming to me for help is high and of course my darling baby refuses Ogi/pap and baby milk is now so expensive I shiver!
Things are going south. I went to the market the other day and wonder what i bought with the money. I just hate this change abg.
A carton of indomie is now #1,900, Lord have mercy
Increase in food prices,no more allowances in our salaries,increase in transport fares,school fees have skyrocketed and high house rents.But since my God is the great provider,my family is not shaken!!!
Everything is same, cos I gave up on the Nigeria government long before buhari came on board because we were not being paid salaries then, so same hustle.
what's your expectation from a clueless government?
Everything is expensive
Alot of things has changed.
Well, it went south for us but in all things we bless God. Many workers in my husband's office were demoted and salaries were slashed to pittance. Imagine someone previously earning about 400k now earning less than 200k after tax. God if what they did pleases you, it pleases us too.
Even Nutella which I bought a week ago for 1000naira now 1200naira and I stood for some minutes thinking whether to buy it or not but my lil girl will not be happy if daddy didn't buy her Nutella. Buhari e Don do na, bring down the price of petrol too, a lot has gone bad since U got in. Mofedaku sef ahaha
Buhari carry Ur change go , Nigeria pple I tire na.
when they say there is a casting down i will say there is a lifting up. That's my new anthem.
Ha,stella,everything oo,i went to the market,everything has increased with over 100%. Beans from 400 to 550,something that was 250 before buhari came in,rice nko,story for another day.The only thing that has remained the same in Nigeria is the constant blame game.May God help us,an th govet ha refused to increase salary.
Well for me.this buhari times has brought lot of blessing to me.I thank God for that

Stella na we business people dey hear nwii. Main mkt Onitsha is a shadow of its old self. Sales are poor, exchange rate is off the hook. But God is still in the business of blessing people. He is my shepherd and I shall not want.
abeg who know where APC market dey because with high cost rate of goods in the market I feel there is a secret market for APC people with cheaper prices

Everything. Excahnge rate, Fuel, Foodstuff, biscuit, cheeseballs is 6inside the pack, courtesy of change.
I've been so broke, I haven't made my hair in a while...All my shoes and bag don old sefIf say I get one job now, shey I for dey manage...Lord Jesus, please de-throne buhari and bless me
Price of foodstuffs has increased drastically.

Some big men are crying too. The price of goods increase almost every day. May God help us.
Same story with u! Last Christmas i nearly die @ 390. Can't even dream of nearing d UK @ this rate. Holiday by d dirty beach in my village. Make i pick isam for a change.
This change affected me both positively and negatively. Let me talk of the positive aspects before the negative. For awhile now I have been wanting to dedicate more time to God but work keeps stopping me. Finally this year I took the first step to doing that. I found Christ and since then he's been my strength. I also wanted to develop my passion or should I even call it hobbies which are cooking and teaching (life coach). This buhari times gave me the opportunity to do more of the two. I started going round preaching and talking more. Sometimes when I organize meetings at home, I cook and my guests always loved my cooking. I'm beginning to consider opening a restaurant...Negatively,exchange rate affected some parents that I was working on their kids admission. Most of them said till things change. People even fly less now. Most builders are letting their engineers do the finishing of their houses now. They tell you that they are just managing to finish the building. Nobody is buying bullet proof doors. They prefer China door. For almost one year, I have not sold a single bullet proof door or window. The last tiles we shipped from Spain is still there because the prices tripled due to exchange rate. Now importation of doors and furnitures are considered contrabands. The exchange rate killed businesses and is still killing. The main cause of this whole problem is that our president is not an intelligent man. He's old and has nothing upstairs except for being a former military head of states. Obasanjo met worst. But he brought in experts like our very own okonjo. She's intelligent and exposed. She gave her best and the country "flourished" to an extent. He had so many young gurus that he was paying for consultation. He did not place them on salaries. He gets their services when he needs them to brainstorm on a policy that is about to be imposed. He uses them to scrutinize all policies and if they said it won't sail baba will tell Okonjo to forget about it. She was monitored and her excesses curtailed. Buhari's problem is that he is stingy, bitter and very myopic. Common sense is lacking where buhari is. What you cannot do, get capable hands to do it for you. Get genius, pay them secretly and let them tell you how it is done. He surrounded himself with bitter people and saddists like him. Like I always tell people; buhari is not my candidate and I don't even have voters card. When I see a man that will move Nigeria forward I will go and get voters card. I don't like Jonathan and not a fan of ApC but just a believer of a better Nigeria. I still have faith that Nigeria will get better under this administration because if it becomes better we will all enjoy the fattening. God bless the federal republic of Nigria.
Every thing is high, I still give God thanks for keeping me alive.
One hardly saves cos one is forced to spend the little they have, abi person no go chop again?? It is well sha
The indomie we were buying for 25 is now 50.everything just multiply by 2.i pray this recession ends cos its so hard for my enemy.
Kwakwakwaka even me that earns pea nuts now hides from answering some certain calls. We need God's intervention and maybe a new leader.
Hmmmmm From something to nothingFrom plenty to emptyFrom full to null...Those who voted for change Una don c f result bah, next time kindly specify d kind if change u want whether its a POSITIVe change or a NEGATIVe change. . .#myopinion
This burahi time eh, the way things double in prices really baffles me. One cannot buy food anymore o.
Biz is slow! Kfc original chicken is now 500 naira then thier drink in a cup is now 250 *tears* Chineke y! KELVIN DAT EDO BOI (STELLZ COUSIN)
In this buhari time, God made it possible for my family to start our building projects, though things are expensive, cement is now 2200, but my God is able
I don,t think there is anything that has not gone up in the market,including waterproof,things are getting really bad,but in all we give God all the glory that we are among the living. When there is life there is hope.
@cakes by Bella. As in ehnnn.. It's crazily ridiculous...Prices keep increasing each day...Icing sugar nko? It's well...
I have refused to think about all I enjoyed that has gone,haven't saved any money yet I get paid every month.we need God's intervention bt I knw it will come to pass,may God give us d grace to wait till our change comes..job 14:14
Hmmmmmmmm, God will help His people. I can't but pray for God's mercy and favor. Everything is so expensive. D worse part is bin dependent on husby lik a parasitic plant. Has not bin easy for him too. God pick my call and gv me a job asap.
Hmmm...infact Stella, I don tire. I've been off job for almost 3 years now and was hoping to secure one this year but for where. Hubby works with a financial institution so atleast we can feed but it hasn't been easy.We were looking forward to his promotion this year so to ease things but that never happened (cos of economic situation). Right now, we are stuck where we are with a baby on the way and 2 beautiful kids to cater for. The thought of 2017 scares me so much cos I don't how we're gonna pull through if things don't change(me getting a job or another stream of income opening up for us). Things have really changed as our feeding has dropped and at a point, I was considering moving school for my kids. God help us though as I still believe he's more than able.
Everything has change from rice to semovita, I bought a bag of semo for 3000 chisos!!! Mhen it just in sane. See crate of egg I usually buy for 650 is now 900 WTF!!! I just tire for this wind of change blowing. Am I pissed? Yes I am seriously PISSED!!!*Hangs leg on the cupboard*
Pls how much is a gram of gold? I want to sell my necklace to raise money and start the biz
Stella thank you for raising this discussion. I taught I was the only one or few people around me, but reading the comments here makes me feel relieved partially. I had put my property on sale but the offer is way too low. My younger brother has not been paid for over 7 months. They lost their baby because they dint go for Antenatal and could not afford good hospital. Let us all pray to vote out this clueless man. I still believe this problem can be solved if this man gives way for others to stir the affairs of this nation. According to economic experts, it might get worse if we continue this way. one Dollar now is almost N500 Naira. I burry my head now in the office because I voted for this government. Now my good organisation is broke due to high exchange rate. Salaries of Aug and Sept are yet to be paid. God help us!!! I also thank you Lord that I am still alive.
Buhari caused my former employers to owe me salaries, that led me to where I am today. Pls I need a job in Lagos.
Business is really slow..only few people are thinking of taking care of hair dis period
Buhari made feeding a luxury in Nigeria. Thank God for the grace to feed well. Thank God for life.Ideato Bride, you are very nasty, you pick on everyone here anyhow, which negative story have I ever brought here before? be careful what you say to people here, it's not just a blog like y'all believe. Change!!! For this world is not how you see it.
You think kfc is food? Poor you.
Mehn! Stella lol sob stories will soon full here. Times are harf and it's affecting everyone. Even school is increasing bills and we're bearing the brunt. But you know what? God has been faithful. Even when there's nothing, he'll provide. It's the grace of God we made it this far. It will end in praise, i will tell my kids i survived buhari times.
I am of the Abrahamic descent, therefore in this season, i become great until i am exceedingly great. AMEN
No one owes you anything fam
God forbid. By 2030,I'll still be young, so not yet biko
Lara peperenpe my sister, God is your strength. He shall surprise us all. Me too I'm just managing this small job instead of staying idle at home. I need a good job, anybody with connections should contact me. I'm in Lagos. Buhari, God is watching you.
Wow so sorry to hear that.. Maybe you should invest in that thing people are talking about. Start small to test the waters. I pray you find something doing soon.
Hmm, this your grammar though, very poor.
He is your father, ewu.
In all things give thanks. I live on junks now just to save. Buhari na evil spirit na with his demons. I still give thanks.
#Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for your life to begin and start making the most of the moment you are in*
So making hair is your problem. I haven't made my hair in over three months and God has been so faithful that all people ask is "is that your hair" "what are u using ", so you better adjust. Thank God sey suffer no dey show for face. Even if we don't see three sq meals, God is so faithful that u can never suspect, he keeps his own.
Love you for this
Mohm'd Buhari increased the prices of everything except salaries. Salaries are being reduced or even owed and people are being sacked. This is affecting us badly. Even menial jobs sef, they will owed you or pay lesser than what was bargain. Telling you they can do it themselves.
I lost my banking job, not bin able to get another yet. I pray to God for better oportunity again
Hmmmm can't remember the last time I sold anything, if i call my peps don't you need new bedsheets and duvets? They will be like for this buhari time? Golden morn of 8500 is now 1100 not to talk of milk, abi na rabina we wan talk about? Things are tough
My fiancee & I can't foot a wedding again o,all thanks to buhari & the economy, no incoming allowances At all, he lost his job.. so we totally Hoping on God now
With your weight, you should be eating healthy. Stop eating junk!!!
My buhari story is a story for another day. In summary My business crumbled, no job in town, no money to learn a skill, if you hear what they charge now ehn? Buhari price has reached their side too. All those people that use to say a bv should go and learn a trade, you need to hear the amount of money involved asides learning materials and certificate, if only.. if only.. Hmmm I need a miracle Lord. Na for God hand me and my children dey now.
Stella my friend, Buhari turned so many bvs into bitter frustrated beings. They come on a blog and assume you are fighting them physically.... Ikwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwa. I can imagine some of them boxing my blog name on their phone screen or computer.............IkwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwakwaNobody should copy this my laugh againooo
Stella dis buhari time if I start talking dis post won't be enough to accommodate my rant. Price of everything has skyrocketed even pure water, indomie, rice, beans, oil I mean everything.. feeding is now a problem I jus pity pple dat are jobless cos we dat have job are even finding difficult to survive.. may God help us all to cross over to positive change. From my understanding de nameBuhari is synonymous to hardship
My Buhari story...I went to the market with the aim of cooking vegetable soup with orishirishi meat and fish but I ended up cooking Okro soup. Prices of ingredients have doubled.
This Buhari period has made my husband come home immediately after work. No more late night hanging out with friends over drinks and fish in the name of traffic. This Buhari don clear traffic finish o.
Nwa Amaka stop lying .U were a strong buhari supporter. Is it today that you suddenly know that he is bitter and myopic?
It is better said than imagined. we closed our bottle water business due to low profit and rising cost of production. Ive been looking for even a teaching job or any job to do cs man must wack but for where. Rejection and dejection everyday everywhere. It is well
Yes I must @ Tayan Taylor.
You no piss at all, if you piss u no go hang leg.
Heya how sad In this same Buhari timesThe Almighty will bless you with a better job
You are just yarning rubbish, even during Obasanjo regime people were still complaining. I ran to Uk during that period, so madam think before you talk.
All will be well, only trust in the lord
Shebi i was saying a bottle of plastic fanta is N150, one foolish anonymous was talking rubbish. Now i know why bitterness will not leave some people. No be cause am, na Buhari una vote cause am.Anyway, me i still dey enjoy my lovely office. Let me go and watch telemundo again jare.
Things have really changed. Before now, every month I stock the house with foodstuff and 'ipapanu' for my kids. Now, I make sure food is the only stuff I buy and for the ipapanu, when there's xtra, they largesse, if not na to show 'understanding'. School fees increased and cost of transportation sky rocketed.
Its 14k if you want to sell and 16k if you want to buy.That was the price as @ last week
Congrats u r reaping d dividends of ur vote.
Congrats u voted for change....
Copy which laugh, something that Ezenwanyi started U suppose pay homage
I lost my job during Buhari times. Hubby is doing his best to provide for the family. We have our baby on the way. We don't even have money to buy baby things.My biz isn't yielding as much profit.People aren't willing to help. Always saying Buhari this n that I just trust God to provide.
Husbands are now going home straight after work.somehow I notice, hold up reduce in lagos and some fun spot around ikeja,surulere, opebi n Allen. All the onishina's now loyal to madams.
I remember back then how we used to complain about eating rice everyday, like play like play rice consumption is now from daily to once in a while... The food we hate eating most, Beans is now the order of the day... God have mercy.....
The times may be hard but only those who believe will overcome.speaking I'll of buhari will not change the situation all prayer can proverbs 11:11 By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.if only we watch what we say about our country then we say shall see good in our land.if we look inwards and develop other sources of earning for our country other than oil then and then will we begin the journey of recovery from recession let us cut down on our excessive and wasteful spending our craze for aso ebi for any and every party. Let us keep praying for those in authority for courage to make the right decisions.it is well with Nigeria.#blessed and highly favoured.
Ganiyat you are so on point. What rice can do beans can do better.#beans to take over
Things are hard now compare to last year. To eat 3 square meal is hard for me as a nursing mother. Lost my 25k job due to low customers banking with us...God look with pity upon Nigeria & have mercy on us. I need a job badly...hubby salary can't sustain d home. Ibadan or Lagos...am ready to work
