I paid N3k recently for two old yams, even here in Nigeria. smiley
That's expensive, considering the fact that yams are grown here.

I'd rather pay 6k for a tuber of yam in Canada, than pay 3k for two tubers in Nigeria.

Buy the yam and plant it. 不不不



If you convert prices in hard currency to Naira, you will never buy anything or even eat.

Yup, the UK is cheaper than Canada and much easier of an adaptation for a Nigerian.

Highest this yam will go for 1k or 1500.
They are ripping you guys over there. If na for me, Dem no go sell because I'm not a yam person.
this car is about 1.5m naira in Canada and a cleaner can buy it here with a month salary. But in Nigeria its about 4m now. Is that not rip off . The person wey export the yam no go incur shipping, logistics , clearing and taxes

The average Nigerian is an economic illiterate. It is a nationwide issue. You should've known this by now.

But Canada's minimum wage is about $16 an hour meaning that in 40 minutes someone can earn the price of this yam.
Yam in Nigeria is about N1500.
How many people make N1500 every 40 minutes?

Ok. I see your point now but even at that, it is still expensive. 3k would have still made sense cos the seller didn't only ship in one yam and prolly also shipped in other items along so it's still a rip off.

And this is before correcting for income.

If the prices are compared in PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) and not straight currency conversion, then we'll really see that country has finish.

Nigerians go to turkey or china buy things that cost less than 1 dols and sell it for 5k or more. But its fine. But person wey export yam should not make profits Do you know how many of those yam go spoil before reaching Canada ni

In Nigeria it is 3k, so factor in packaging, shipping and clearing costs plus profit. $10 is about right

Most likely that those yams are exported from Jamaica, definitely not Nigeria.
