Charcoal Business Booms In Ondo As Cooking Gas Price Increases by Ekiti360(m): 3:39pm On Jan 14, 2017
Residents of Okitipupa in Ondo State have continued to partronise charcoal sellers as substitute for their daily domestic cooking, as the high cost of kerosene and cooking gas lingered on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that kerosene, formerly sold for N300 per litre has gone up to between N400 and N450 while a 12.5Kg cylinder of cooking gas formerly at N3, 500 has skyrocketed to between N4.500 and N5,000.

NAN also reports that a full sack of charcoal, lasting one and half months depending on the usage, has also increased from N1,500 to N2, 500 and N3,000.

Some of the charcoal sellers who spoke with NAN in separate interviews in the area said that the high cost of kerosene and cooking gas had turned to be blessing in disguise for their business.

They said that many customers now patronised them and charcoal gained popularity.

Mrs Bonike Usman, a charcoal seller who said roasted yam and plantain sellers patronised her, said that she had recorded high sale as many customers now patronised her.

“I think the high coast of kerosene and gas is a blessing in disguise as I now sell about five bags per day, the same measure I sold in a week before,” she said.

Mrs Wulemotu Akande, another charcoal seller, also said that she made lots of gain in the past two weeks as many people now trooped to her shop to purchase charcoal in different quantities.

“Food vendors are not left out in the rush for charcoal because they can no longer afford the prices of gas,”Akande said.

Another charcoal seller, Mrs Wunmi Ashade said that high costs of kerosene and gas had suddenly given charcoal a sudden prominence adding that charcoal sellers now made brisk business and on high patronage.

“I knew people will rush to buy charcoal because it has happened many times, so I bought huge stock in December, so I am making more profit now,” Ashade said.

Mrs Oluyemi Adegbemi, a food vendor, who also told NAN that charcoal was the best for cooking, saying that it burns blue flame like gas, urged the people to imbibe the culture of using it for their cooking.

“Charcoal burns blue flame like gas and it is better compared to fire wood which burns red flame and make pots to be black and dirty,” she said.

Mr Adefemi Ikumawoyi, a customer, said that he had to buy a bag of charcoal for his wife because he could no longer afford the high cost of kerosene.

He appealed to the Federal Government to take drastic step in ensuring the availability of kerosene and cooking gas in order to make life more meaningful for the masses.

This is just the begining

I want the economy to get worse

I want charcoal to be sold for 50 thousand naira per bag

I pray that Buhari will rule Nigeria for 100 years

This is just the beginning of the hardship

Kerosene was 120 naira when Goodluck Jonathan was the president and some idiots said that they want change, they voted for a 90 year old farmer and 1 year later a liter of kerosene is 500 naira

I pray that the price of charcoal will increase to 9 thousand naira for 1 piece so that these zombies will die of hunger

In every recession, opportunities abound. Same way cocoa farmers are smiling to the bank right now.

BTW, the FG needs to do something quick about this gas and kerosene scarcity, if care isn't not taken, charcoal too will soon be scarce.

Am in a country that don't have any natural resources..
I dont even know what they do to sustain their economy..Imported some goods from China direct to supply to clients here thinking I will just take my goods and go..
Until the customs frustrated me..Had to meet an influential persona in the country and it was way above her power included a mayor..
They would have confiscated my goods. The process was so damn long.
In a country where there is free transport..free internet..24hrs light.

When will Nigeria grow..
Nigeria is the only country in the world with so much abundance of resources..Yet we're not making any use of them,Not a single one..
Am so ashamed of my country..

There was kerosene and petrol scarcity but the price never went beyond 140 naira

Can you explain to me why 1 liter of kerosene is sold for 600 naira in your non looting saint Buhari's government

I got to realise that human life has no value to this man, Hunger is everywhere, everything is too expensive and he is doing noting about it, When people that are been massacred in Southern Kaduna have not even received ordinary sorry from him I am talking about hunger

It is well with this country.

Yoruba mothers are one of the best when it comes to child upbringing. Yoruba mothers produce the best range of slaps: IGBATI, IFOTI, IGBAJU, IGBARUN, IFORUN, IFAKUN, ILADI, ABARA. These slaps will make you think you were adopted.

IGBATI will make you correct your wrongs instantly!

The beauty of IFOTI is, you will confess your sins on the spot.

IGBARUN, IGBAJU and IFORUN will make you expose those who committed the crime with you without hesitation.

ABARA and ILADI will make you pee in your new pants.

And apart from IGBAJU, we have an advanced one which is IGBAJU OLOYI. When you receive this one, you'll lose balance and your head will go into "auto-search" as you'll be wondering what hit you!!!

Oh!!! IGBAJU OLOYI... It can reset someone to 3D (DEAF,DUMB and DAFT). You'll be told 'let's go home' and you'll say 'its in my pocket'... LOL !!!

GOD bless our parents for the good upbringing. If you were brought-up in yoruba land, regardless of how caring your mother was, you would have encountered these slaps that brings you back to human default.

I know you're now on the memory lane ...once more God bless our strong and caring mothers.
