Prices Of Foodstuffs Allegedly Hit The Roof

The Prices of essential commodities has been slowly rising since last year 2016 and at the rate it is going, the average Nigerian won't be able to afford bread, fish, oil, meat, yam and other essential commodities by the end of 2017 if nothing is done!




As inflation rate rose for the 15th consecutive month to 18.72 per cent last month, commodities are becoming increasingly un-affordable for some Nigerians..

Take home pay i hear,no longer takes anyone home.....


Whats the situation with the state you are in?

God save Nigeria!

    2. This is so true, I had to close my provision shop cause of this, everything has gone up, will carry 100k to market and things you'll buy will not occupy half the space in the shop...I can't give myself heart attack from too much thinking..had to close up shop ooo..God has been faithful..

    1. True talk Blackberry.
      Even if it's to get those flower pots, buy seeds then plant; especially vegetables. My friend did this after she paid me a visit and saw lots of ridges. She was shocked to see many kinds of vegetables, plantain, corn, yam et al. She lamented on not having space and I suggested flower pots.
      Although not everyone can farm because of space or some other reason.
      E go better.

    Things have gotten so bad.
    Garri is now so expensive.
    Meat too.
    There's hardly light so it's mostly gen if you buy 1k fuel for gen it won't even last 3 hours.

  11. Stella the worst is BRT has been increased from #120 to #200 and #300 to 300. Depends on the route.

    I'm tired already. My transportation allowance hasn't increased, Staff bus not yet fixed, another estimate of over 2M was sent to my office last week.

    No more staff bus for my route because the company doesn't have so much money at the moment for repairs.

I can't even bring myself to buy groundnut oil cos the price is just so outrageous. I think the price of beef is still on the low, the last time I bought (last three weeks?), I got a big chunk for #400 and those ones who sell food didn't increase the price of beef to #100 as against #50.

  23. That's how I sent my girl to the market 2 days ago I think
    And she said the frozen fish we usually buy between 350 and 400 is now 1200 for one. I gave her money to buy 3 but when she called me and said 1 was the price for 3,i asked her to buy meat please. It's not that serious. Imagine buying 3 fish at 1200 each just to make spaghetti. Nah, I couldn't do it. It wasn't even all those exotic fish. It's Titus fish o. I can't pay 1200 for that fish. My guest even suggested another fish which was gote and they said same price. I was like oh please buy meat with the money

    The only fish I can pay that much and more for is tilipia and croaker..

    I smiled to the woman, showed her my hand that it is Always pad I bought and nothing more. I did this because I bought always pad last two months at the rate of N250 each. The woman shouted, Aunty, that is the price now.. What?. I dropped the pad, collected my money and entered bike N50.00 to another shop, same price of N450.00 I was so pained. What? always Pad N450.00 for what?. Maybe this sanitary pad issue pained me so much because I am TTC. The sight of monthly cycle makes me moody.

  51. Stella it is so sad. Things are very costly and we that were managing before are starving now. The smallest Shawa fish is now 250 per one in my area. Before I use to pluck vegetable in my surroundings and cook with the fish and buy fufu two for #50 from my neighbour to eat it. Now, they have build house in every open space, no vegetable again and coupled with this children, we drink garri most times and eat bread with water. If I have up to N1000, I normally make pap and that will be our food for morning and night, only afternoon we will look for something else to eat. I pray God remember this country very soon before we will starve to dead.

What Nigeria is passing through today is NOT PHYSICAL. since about 1964 till 2017,the blood of innocent people is bing shed, directly and indirectly by politicians, militias, amy, police, robber, the genocides that has and is still taking place, etc. This people's blood is constantly CRYING OUT before GOD for vengeance.
    SOLUTION : We must realise our mistakes, go to God for forgiveness as a nation, agree on how we as a ntion should live in peace , this is the foundation .with this foundation Nigeria will go places.
