What Has Garri,Yam And Pure Water Got To Do With Corona Virus??
Its quiet appalling how the prizes of foods and commodity is being raised all in the name of Covid-19. A tuber of yam which normally sales for N350-N400 depending on size, as at today is being sold at N700, a bag sachet water is being sold at N200 and N250 and the case of Garri is now like a hot cake.
Most times when you ask why the increase in prize, its either you hear complains or reasons such as ; “The nylons are being imported from China, or the fertilizers or chemicals to turn those raw materials into finished goods are being imported from China”
I wonder if this epidemic increases, people are not only going cry about the virus but also hunger and starvation. I pray that shouldn’t be the case, please help in prize control, this is not the best time to hype prizes. Help the poor masses!!
