    Nigerian Workers Lament Of High Cost of Food Items

    Nigerian

    Under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, the average Nigerian’s standard of living is steadily declining as food prices continue to skyrocket.

    Without a doubt, the current rise in goods and services prices is linked to low farming activity and low productivity as a result of worsening insecurity, particularly in the Northern region. Many farmers are fleeing their farms in fear of their lives as bandits, Boko Haram, and herdsmen attack communities and kidnap families.

    The current economic situation is forcing families to go hungry, as an average Nigerian who could afford to feed three times a day is now struggling to feed twice or less.

    Food prices appear to be rising in Nigeria’s major cities on a monthly basis. For example, the prices of flour products such as ‘bread,’ grains such as ‘rice, beans, garri,’ and regular beverages have skyrocketed in the last month when compared to previous months in the year.

    According to our findings, “the regular ready-to-eat can fish ‘Sardine’ sold at N300 now goes for N600 at the market and sells for N700 in supermarkets across the country.” A bag of beans that cost N30,000 in early September now costs between N50,000 and N100,000. Also, sachets of beverages (e.g., milk, milo) sold for N700 are now sold for N1200, and cooking gas 5kg sold for N2000 is now sold for N3000.” Bread that used to cost between N350 and N400 now costs N700. Almost all consumable prices have more than doubled in the last month.

    Millions of working-class Nigerians can no longer live a decent life on their income not to talk of those earning lower than the minimum wage. The question that bothers most Nigerians is, “how does a Nigerian who earns a minimum wage of N30,000 survive with the current hike in the price of food? How do families feed?” Sadly, these questions remain unanswered.

    The country’s national minimum wage is N30,000 per month, mainly applicable to civil servants as some private sectors pay as low as N15,000 to workers. Also, many state governments are yet to implement the new minimum wage.
