Price Of Food Items On A continuous Rise - NBS by omenka(m): 5:02am On Aug 22, 2014
The pockets of Nigerians have continued to thin out as the
cost of food rose month after month since March 2014.


Once again, the Food index edged higher to 9.9 percent in
July from 9.8 percent in June.


People generally paid more for items like bread and cereals,
meats, and fish groups.

The pace of the increase, the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics
[NBS], said was weighed upon by slower increases in the
dairy, sugar, jam, honey, chocolate and confectionery; and
coffee, tea and cocoa groups.

“After increasing at a faster pace for the previous three
months, the pace of price increases measured by the ‘All
items less farm produce’ or Core sub-index eased in July,” a
report from the National Bureau of Statistics said.
Prices, it added, rose by 7.1 percent (year-on-year), a
full percentage point lower than the rate recorded in June,
while slower price increases in the alcoholic beverages,
tobacco and kola; clothing and footwear; housing water,
electricity.

Gas and other fuel; and many other divisions contributed to
the muted increases in the Core sub-index.
On a month on month basis, the agency said price increases
in the headline index eased for the second consecutive
month, with prices increasing by 0.65 percent in July, lower
from a 0.77 percent increase in June.

The slower price increase of the Headline index in July were
equally driven by a slower rise in all areas that contribute to
the index, with Urban prices (year-on-year) increasing at a
faster pace for the third consecutive month in July.

Rural prices, on the other hand, followed a similar trend
over the period, increasing by 8.1 percent from 8.0 percent
in June. On a month on month basis, the bureau said the
pace of increases in Urban prices eased in July after
advancing faster for two consecutive months, with Urban
Headline index increasing by 0.70 percent, about 0.1
percentage points lower from June.

The Rural All-items index rose at a slower pace by 0.60
percent in July, down from 0.74 percent in June.
The percentage change in the average composite CPI for
the 12-month period ending in July 2014 over the average of
the CPI for the previous twelve-month period was recorded
at 8.0 percent, unchanged from the average 12-month rate
of change recorded in June 2014.

The corresponding 12-month year-on-year average
percentage change for the Urban index stood at 8.1 percent
in July, unchanged in the previous month, while the
corresponding Rural index eased to 7.8 percent for the
Month of July.

Food prices, as observed by the Food sub-index, the report
stated, rose by 9.9 percent (year-on-year) in July, marginally
higher from 9.8 percent recorded in the previous month.
“This is the highest price increase observed in a year, and
an advancement in the pace of price increases for the fifth
consecutive month,” the report said.

It attributed the price increases during the month to price
increases in fruits, vegetables, and potatoes, yam and other
tuber groups.
On a month-on-month basis, food prices increase
recorded approximately the same rate of change for four
consecutive months by 0.8 percent, with highest price
increases recorded in the Fruits, Meats, Fish, and Potatoes,
Yam and Other Tubers groups.

On average annual rate of change of the Food sub-index for
the 12-month period ending in July 2014, the report said it
was 9.5 percent, unchanged from the previous month.
After increasing for three consecutive months, the pace of
increase of “All items less Farm Produce” or Core index,
which excludes the prices of volatile agricultural products
slowed during the month under review.

Prices rose by 7.1 percent, down from 8.1 percent in June,
indicating the slowest price increase recorded since the
beginning of the year.
Price increases on a month-on-month basis also slowed to
this year’s low, as prices rose by 0.2 percent, down by 0.5
percentage points from June.

Also, Nigeria’s consumer price index, CPI, which measures
inflation rate in the country, rose 0.1 percentage points from
8.2 percent in June to 8.3 percent in July (year-on-year),
latest statistics by the NBS shows.

The NBS, in its latest edition of the statistical news released
late on Sunday, said the rise represented the fifth
consecutive month of year-on-year increases in the headline
inflation index.

The Bureau indicated that the faster pace of price increases
recorded in the Headline inflation index were attributed to
an increase in multiple divisions mirrored by the Food sub-
index observed in movements in food prices between
February and July.
The report contains the revised CPI based on Nigeria
Living Standard Survey (NLSS) conducted between 2003 and
2004.

Nigeria has the capacity to feed the whole populace yearly: but lack of storage material is the chief problem and not inadequate output.
If we should invest on storage materials then i think our food crisis would be reduced to the barest minimum

The Sanusi days are over. His success in bringing inflation to the lowest level in recent times is being over turned less than six months after his exit.... And some people say he was just a mallam!
