  1. I cannot even buy it for 500 - 600 on a normal day. Maximum is 300 naira. God is with us.

  3. I will not buy that size of Yam for 400. We make these people do this things to us. Most you eat Yam now. There is potatoes

  4. Some prices are beginning to come down with the few I have seen. At least people with conscience are now reverting. The painter of Garri that was sold for 1,500 is now 800 where I got it. Though some may still be selling higher.

    Both Nigerians and their leaders are exploiting the situation. The reason revolution won't take place in this country. The populace saddled with the responsibility of revolting could even be more criminal than the government.

  21. Things are so expensive. A small basket of irish potatoes is 1500 naira and paint bucket 2500 naira.
    Even platain is now very expensive, the one sold for 1k used to be 400 naira. It's so sad. Price of goods are high, income is static.

  22. Well, i guess the Virus contributed to it. However, yam is usually more expensive at this time of the year.
    Nevertheless, we bought 100 tubers for 38k at Masaka market last week Friday.
    For yam, u could come as a group, buy 100 or 50 tubers to share. That's how I buy yam.
    For those of us in Abuja try Orange market, or masaka market. My colleague and I even go as far as Lambata in Niger state
