Inflation: Scarcity of bread Hits Kaduna, Katsina, Kano as prices soar by treesun: 11:29am On Jul 10
It is a tale of woes as an acute scarcity of one of Nigerians’ most popular staple foods, bread, has hit Kaduna, Katsina, and Kano States.

Checks by the News Agency of Nigeria correspondents revealed that the most-favoured staple was now as scarce as petrol or the highly-prized precious metal, Gold.

It was observed that whereas the commodity was very hard to come by, its prices have hit the roof.

Many of the residents could no longer afford the staple and, as such had turned to other not-too-cheap alternatives like noodles, millet porridge, and bean cake, as well as bread and beans, among others.

The prices of the commodity have also been increased by between 20 to 40 per cent.

Many shop owners and consumers have vehemently lamented the obnoxious development, appealing for urgent action to redress the ugly trend.


One of the bakers, who craves anonymity, told NAN in Kaduna, ”It is not that we are on strike, but we have had to stop production since 1st July 2024.

“This unfortunate development was necessitated by the scarcity of wheat flour and its high cost, as well as sugar, oil, and other additives.

“For instance, in June, we were buying a 50kg bag of flour for between N53,000 to N55,000, has regrettably skyrocketed to between N67,000 to N70,000.

“How can we produce bread and also break even under this precarious situation?“


Some bread sellers and consumers in Kaduna State decried the scarcity of bread around the state metropolis, saying that it had affected their businesses and daily lives.

A tea and bread seller, Haidar Basiru, said he usually buys 100 loaves of bread but due to the ongoing paucity, he was able to get only 30 loaves, which had finished already.

”The bakeries are saying they are on strike due to a hike in flour and sugar. This development has seriously affected our businesses as we usually operate in the mornings and evenings.

“But, from the look of things, we may not come out in the evening due to bread shortage. In fact, most of my colleagues operating around this axis in Kasuwan barci have not opened today, “
he said.

Similarly, Mrs Kafayat Sadiq, a provisions seller, stated that she couldn’t get bread to stock in her shop since Tuesday, saying that her supplier had complained of the high cost of flour.

A resident, Abdullahi Muhammad, said, “I went to the shop in the morning to buy bread, which would be eaten as breakfast in my house but unfortunately, I couldn’t get it.

”I had to buy spaghetti for the children to eat and go to school since there is no bread; I hope the issue will be alleviated soon.”

A resident of Funtua, Funtua Local Government Area of Katsina State, Aliyu Idris, told NAN that the prices of bread have also gone up in the state.

He said, ”For instance, a loaf of bread that was selling for between N 200 before now goes for N 400. This has affected all the sizes of the bread.”

Idris also stated that tea sellers and shop owners were now finding it very hard to get the commodity for sale to their customers.

In Kano State, a resident also corroborated the scenarios in Kaduna and Katsina States, saying, “A loaf of bread formerly selling for N600 before now goes for N 800.

Why should educated me be working as a block molder

Look at the people sane Nigerians are sharing country with, these are the type of people supporting Tinubu, I have asked myself many times if these people are really human beings...

The bad part is they try to gaslight the sane people in Nigeria to believe that they are the normal people, but reality keeps exposing them, just read their comments and see for yourself.

Proverbs 29;2 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.


The wicked rule because the people voted for them.
The people groan because they place their trust and hope on the wicked.

The bakery owner in this report cited the increasing cost of raw materials as the reason many of their colleagues are packing up.

Of course you saw that but in your WhatsApp group, you have been told to apply deflectionary tactics on every thread that indicts Tinubu your pay master.

Or to say toh.

But trust me, it's no longer working wink
