And the buck stops on whose table? whose job is it to stop the bandits irritating everybody and bringing out the militancy in them? whose job is it to stop the fulani terrorists decimating the farmer populations?

In as much as the economy is bad and the government of the day is not helping matters, I honestly think that food is very cheap in Nigeria. Using South East as example, with #150, I can eat better agbugbu (don't know the English name) and achicha, or beans and plantain, or okpa and mineral.

I don't think inflation had anything to do with your list. The present inflation occurred as a result of boarder lockdown for a year, the government though that shutting down the boarders will increase local production and reduce costs but on the contrary the we weren't able to produce enough to meet consumption thereby creating scarcity which eventually increased prices. The issue could have been salvaged earlier if only the government opened the boarders but they didn't. Added to that we now had a lockdown as a result of Corona virus, then insecurity in the north limited production of food thereby increasing prices. The crux of the matter is that government didn't handle a bad situation well and the bad situation has become a terrible situation.

[s][/s] You're just talking trash. The cost of fuel affects the price of the movement of goods and services so who should we blame for the price hike in fuel? Government

The insecurity plauging the nation's farmers has left alot of farmers scared of returning to the farms due to killer herdsmen, so who are we to blame for the insecurity? Government


So stop affiliating yourself with this satanic regime

The fact that you hate the govt doesnt mean you shouldnt call BS when you see one, youve refused to see beyond your nose...

riddle me this.... was there a fuel price increase in the recent weeks that im not aware of?

why the sudden increase in everything?

Go to the market chief, people hoard stuff, oil, beans, yam, everything....why?

Was Nigeria ever great.

I don't get all the buhari centered arguments.

The country is rotten because the people are historically rotten and useless.

Case in point, hardly ever see Nigerian's discussing solutions.

I blame this on the seller/traders they are seriously inconsiderate everyone wants to gain more than their profits which frustrates the average Nigerian, currently you can't even buy a soft drink of N100, Nigerian traders sells things as if we Nigerians(consumers) are from another Western country they don't understand that we are in this circumstances together
Even if the government has a share of the blame you can't still dispute the fact that we Nigerians are our problem

Have you tried to sell anything?
Go and do so before you blame them.
They aren't running a charity service.
They must make a profit after all the expenditures have been paid off.
If you still disagree with their service, then just grow/manufacture your own food and leave them alone.
