Inflation: What Is Happening Pls? by ProJectAnatot(m): 3:11pm On Jul 20
The rate of inflation of general commodities especially food items is alarming to me angry. I have been in the southeastern part of the country since the end of January and some commodities like bread, soft drinks and even food have inflated by up to 50% since January. Please I am really confused about this situation.
And also surprisingly no one is talking about it..
Economists and analysts in the house is there any particular reason for this fast inflation... Is it oil?, naira? Incompetence? Or even corruption? Fulani herdsmen? flood? I am really being sincere with my question!

Good afternoon.

causes
1. High cost of transportation compared to last year.

2. High operating cost for the companies. Due to (fuel, phcn, taxes)

3. General inflation caused by a very strong US dollar.(this has affected every country) however our own is different due to our excessive borrowing. With a weaker currency we are repaying loans at twice the rate at which we borrowed. Starting the above processs all over again. Leading to a weaker naira.

solution
A stable country and economy leads to a stronger currency.

Learn how to (sanction, transfer and punish) members of your administration who deviate and who's actions effectively inflame the polity. This includes but not limited to policemen, ministers or members of the armed forces.
Our leaders and our governors should at all times. Embrace actions that promote peace and prosperity.

Hate has clogged your brain up with large cobwebs that you can't even think properly anymore and see beyond tribalism/bigotry for once in your life.

You're probably and ipob member and the op made it clear he lives in the south east. Has your hate for Nigeria turned you against your own brothers too? Mumu.

The country is getting hard for everybody and the faster we all unite the hold this government accountable for the hardships they've brought on Nigerians, the better.

It doesn't matter what you claim to be and how you see others. You need to eat and pay you bills in NIGERIA. If inflation keeps increasing at this rate, both you and the people you call "terrorists" will suffer the same fate. Hunger doesn't care about your ethnicity or religion neither does the bills.

And incase I forget, your ipob and oduduwa shit is dead on arrival incase you don't know, unless you live in some kind of fantasy Disney world.

The value of the Nigerian naira is nothing to write home about, hence, the rapid inflation.

1- insecurity. A lot of farmers can’t go to the farm.

2- infrastructural deficit- a lot of the produced goods are perishable and a lot got wasted due to lack of preservation. Infact there’s nothing can be done without ELECTRICITY

3- lack of visionary leaders- what are our politicians doing to checkmate the rising price of food items?

Recommendation

All Nigerians should just brace up for the worst. The price gonna keep going up, unless buhari done something ASAP. But what can Buhari do?

1. Naira depreciation.

2. Money printing.

3. Low investments in human capital.

4. Low investments in basic infrastructures.

5. Fall in oil price.

6. Inappropriate governmental policies.

7. The reticent state of the judiciary.

8. Low trust.

9. High immorality.

10. The misplacement of rationalism.

11. Poor security system.

Etc.

Thanks.

This is a classical example of NEXT LEVEL

Naira has been devalued more than 3 times alone this year
