Why Garri, Semo And Fufu Are Now More Expensive - Farmers' Body by 360frolic(m): 1:44pm On Jun 02, 2017
According to Segun Adewumi, President of the Nigeria Cassava Growers Association, the recent reduction in cassava supply and increased cost of cassava products is due to herdsmen attacks on farms.

“It has been a very difficult time for cassava farmers in Nigeria because of the incessant attacks by herdsmen, who make it difficult for them to go to their farms.

“Farmers are afraid to go and cultivate; some farmers have lost their lives for venturing into the farms.

He said “garri”, flour, “fufu”, starch and semolina had become more costly, because these attacks caused cassava farmers to stop farming in some parts of the country.

Also, insurance firms did not compensate the affected farmers because policies taken by the farmers did not cover malicious damage to farms, he said.

A small paint bucket measure of cassava flakes, otherwise known as ‘Garri’, costs between N900 and N1,100, depending on the location in Lagos metropolis.

A 60kg bag of the commodity costs between N11,000 and N12, 500 at the Mushin Oloosa Market, depending on the quality.

I won't dispute the fact that market unions can capitalize on situations to their advantage, but have you wondered why they would choose to do so with such drastic increase at this time? Do you realize that when there is scarcity in a particular part of the country some dealers will go to markets in other states that they don't normally go to for supply? When there is surge in demand in those places that there were no attacks, there is bound to be increase in price (Simply demand and supply economics). About a week ago, my Aunt who sells foodstuff said her supplier came back from her purchase trip empty, not even a single bag to buy. At the time the price got up by about 30%, but it has come down a bit, but still on the high side.

When the herdsmen attack went on so long without being checked, I had feared this will be the outcome and I'm not surprised. It even made me to start a farm in my state which does not yet have attacks. I just pray it remains so.



Juanthenairague:
Serious review on price control needed, if not....
Instead of dealing with the herdsmen problem, you are advocating price control? Do you realize that with the risk now involved in farming if the price is not favorable most people will run away from farming? Would you also force the farmers to plant?

Fulani herdsmen are the only group that have started restructuring for their own good.


Others are folding their hands.
