Eighty-four (N84) as a teacher with School Certificate as qualification in October 1975. A crate of eggs went for N1.50k then. A Hardley Chase novel was 50 kobo and a tin of Geisha was 90 kobo. No able-bodied man, no matter how hungry could finish a 40 kobo loaf of bread. Those were the days!

Wow that is another life time (unreal).

Wow that is another life time (unreal).

Very REAL, Bros. Why should I lie at my time of life? A plate of food in any of Unibadan Cafeterias in the early to the middle 1980s was 50 kobo, for example. That was before Babangida messed things up. It used to be 20 kobo per plate. Obasanjo jerked it up to 50 kobo. Ever heard of "Ali Must Go," padna? That was part of its causes. Ironically, the very people who enjoyed those perquisites as youths are the same people that are denying today's youths of the same benefits! You can now see say, dem don kill Naija finish!
