    1. This comparsion is okay self, compare before and during Buhari/BUBU, then you will see the damage he has caused us.

    2. My own wonderment in all this matter is if Buhari, Aisha, Oshibajo and tinubu and all tge wicked people in this government are not seeing and hearing all these and the groaning of people under the hardship. Bcos ordinarily they should be scared or have their evil consciences been hardened beyond redemption.

    5. Its really disheartening. I thank God I bought basket of tomatoes when it was very cheap earlier in the year. At least it will last till October or November. My bulk beans finished and I was shocked that a paint of honey beans was 2700. Even cheap white beans is about the same price. Titus fish is story for another day, both fake and original. My favourite bread is now 600 per loaf.

    1. Check your beans. Maybe you meant to write 2400 because that's the current price

      Delete
    2. 1400 for paint bucket of beans? I bought honey beans(paint) for 2700 last week.. Pure water nko? 10 bags is now 1500 here.

      For us, we've given up eating certain foods for now, like yam. Cos I can't use 1500 to buy one tubber of yam and it won't be enough for my family of 5.. We're substituting with potatoes for now. I can't come and be thinking the situation and give HBP a chance.

      God will help us

    3. Paint bucket of beans #1400 me! And you did not buy it. Better go back and buy it now now now. Paint bucket of beans in my area is #2400.

  3. It's such a sorry case, Stella.

    You can't go to the market and buy what you bought last month at the same price. I also believe traders have taken advantage of the economic situation to increase the prices of their wares.

  4. Bread is now 500naira, Paint of Garri 1,500naira and then one that still hurts me is the sliced yams going for 200naira...We are in deep inflation...Plenty money in circulation chasing fewer goods...

    1. But slices of yam in the market is not a new thing o. I served in modakeke 6yrs ago and they used to sell slices of yam. I was shocked the first time I saw it. Thought they were meant to feed goats till I asked the seller and she told me people that can't afford to buy a full tuber of yam usually buy them in slices.

    2. Na the Garri shock me pass... Like Garri is officially big man food. It's disheartening. Salary no increases, expense sky rocket.

  17. Stella this your list no correct Semo is 4100 for 10kg, tomatoes is 100 per one. It is terrible Nigerians are suffering everyday, the prices keep going up. One modu of garri is not 600 from 200. To eat in Nigeria now is a problem. It wont be well for he leaders of the country, they won't do anything because they are not affected.

  18. The prices now are crazy. Tomato and pepper are something else. You need to budget like 4k for tomato and pepper. Ordinary egg is almost 2k for one crate. I thank God for frozen chicken that hasn't really increased in price

  19. Bread is N550 per loaf. Groundnut oil 25litres is N23k. A pack of golden penny spaghetti is N270, so the carton will be more than N5k. God will continue to help us.

    2. Plant vegetables and pepper in your compound.
      Brood your own domestic stock and keep a handful of chicken for eggs.

      Go to farmers'market in omi and oja oba, you would get cheaper bargains

      Delete
    3. Some of them are unemployed and complaining about food prices and will not lift their hand to plant anything, I get if you don't have the space, but if the space is there you cannot complain. NGO's will offer free seeds and help for those who want to be self sufficient. Tomatoes, peppers and okra are some of the easiest things to grow.

      A few years ago ppl were told to enter agriculture and farm because ppl must eat. I don't know how many listened. Even through the pandemic supermarkets made a killing because ppl must eat.

      All these bakers making fancy cakes and what not can start baking bread and rolls which are far easier and require less ingredients, they can supply bread and rolls at lower rates and fill the gap.

      All these men who must eat certain things and can only survive on certain things need to adjust their appetites to meet their reality. If you want fresh food but only have a canned food budget then adjust accordingly. You want eggs and bacon but only have a pap budget then adjust accordingly. Survival is a must

    7. People who say go into farming are not aware of the whole situation.
      Farmers are killed, crops are being eaten by cows.
      In my village, the major farm settlement, which is quite a distance from where people live, is abandoned mostly, reason is, herdsmen, their cows,and bandits.
      Fuel price has increased a lot this year, transportation to to towns is more expensive.
      Even seeds are more expensive. And let's not forget that the rains haven't come in much this year, and it's almost July.
      They say apply for agriculture loans, it's not easily accessible to local farmers and even some of us who are educated and interested aren't even given sufficient. It's as thought he loans are mostly reserved for big farmers who even mostly plant crops for food companies and export products like Sesame, cocoa etc.
      I'm tired of typing.

      Delete
  26. It's disheartening, and then some people's salary cannot even afford food that can last for 2 weeks, and you have other bills to pay

    Yam for me na no go area e don reach 2 months I no ask how much, now def the price down worst, my kids loves yam bit o substituted it with sweet potato that one better pass

    Garri, rice and beans are no go area, but watin man go do we must chop

    People can no longer afford 2 square meal, am not an early water so I deliberately start cooking breakfast by 10am so I won't have to worry about noon

    And to say whatever goes up in Nigeria never comes down is a thing to worry about

  28. Stella Nigerian traders also contributed to the increase in price, they use the advantage of "bad Naija Economy" and personally inflated the prices too. Nigeria doesn't have body that regulate the prices of things especially consumables and unfortunately prices DONT GO DOWN in Nigeria.

  36. TIPS ON GETTING CHEAP FOOD ITEMS THAT HAS GONE CRAZILY EXPENSIVE

    I got delivery of food stuffs on Saturday from my village in Edo state because I cannot kill myself with this Lagos price.
    1. yellow garri paint rubber - @900 and I kukuma bought half bag. The Eba I use the garri make that Saturday dey draw like okro soup and that is exactly how I like my Eba
    2. 1tuber of correct big big yam @ 500
    3. hand peel melon @100 per milk cup
    4. 5liters of correct red oil @3,000. I never buy Red oil for Lagos since I got married. my mum rock.
    Ogbono, list is plenty o even the plantain, I cant get it here in Lagos triple that amount. 2k for the waybill of the load which was packed in two ghana must go bags I think My mum begged the driver o.

    God please bless and keep my mum alive for me.

I bought tomatoes early this year for 7k per basket. It will last me till August or October. I bought carton Titus fish in February. I only go to market to buy few things.

  37. Ppl have to adapt. Someone said they have started using potatoes instead of yams. Cabbage can be a life saver because it can be used in so many different ways and is usually dirt cheap. Potatoes are extremely versatile as well. What about pumpkins and investigating canned beans over dry ones, at least for now.

    If times are hard then one cannot eat like they used to. When starvation entered Somalia that is how the ppl learned that they could eat fish. Vegetables cooked in coconut milk make a tasty stew, still healthy, filling and meatless can be eaten with rice. Folks may have to start limiting meat dishes to 2-3 times a week and eat vegetables the rest of the time. Eat fruits more regularly and make a big pot of pap in the mornings which can stretch more easily to feed a family for breakfast. Make a sandwich and take with them for lunch with some nuts, fruits and drink water for their lunch meal at work or school.

    4. LOL. Anon 15:44, please do you live in Nigeria?
      This potatoes you see everyone typing as option over yam isn't same cost as before. It's just 4 medium size for 200 cheapest- I've seen recently.
      What are the options that Cabbage gives as staple dish?
      Funnily enough meat is even somewhat cheaper than fish, unless you're buying fish just to perceived the smell in the food. Fruits surprisingly aren't much in season. And the ones you see are also expensive except watermelon.
      About pap, a paint ofcirn is at least 2500. Sorghum and millet too and even cheaper soybeans is now so so expensive.
      Worse still, power supply is so poor now, you can hardly buy and store in freezer

      Delete
    5. Cabbage can be curried
      Shredded and steamed with some carrots also shredded, cooked with whatever herbs and spices to taste and eaten with whatever you want to eat it with
      If you have very little meat of fish that you can cut into small bits, you can add the cabbage to bring up the meal and stretch it.
      Cabbage again can be cooked down in coconut milk to make a stew, you can add other veggies to it if you want it more colourful, or leave it as is.
      Cabbage pie (requires egg)
      Stuffed cabbage

      Other things that can make pap/porridge for breakfast:
      Green plantains
      Green bananas
      Carrots
      peanuts
      Sweet potatoes
      oats
      Rice

      I don't know about the potatoes ppl are talking about, but if folks can find it as a substitute then it is worth mentioning. Potatoes are a very versatile food too, they are definitely not as dense as yams, but perhaps can be cooked with boiled cassava to bring up the meal. I have a thing for cassava

      Are cassavas still affordable? And cassava can be used to make flour if one has the time and energy for that process.

      No, not in Nigeria but know a thing or two about making it through the tough times.

      Watermelon is extremely healthy and hydrating. Also the white part under the skin can be pickled or cooked and eaten. Do not throw it out. And watermelons are known to help men in the other department. That is one amazing fruit.

      Osundi is the person to explore possible recipes options with, I am sure she will figure out how to use the things I listed and add her twist to it to make a tasty feast.
