The price of foodstuff continues to increase in Nigerian markets- See Kate Henshaw's tweet

Over two weeks ago, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, who also doubles as the chairman of presidential task force on soaring prices of foodstuffs, disclosed that the prices of rice and other food stuffs were expected to fall. This he said in an interview with Leadership saying;

 “The Federal Government will intervene on the prices of rice and other commodities in the next two weeks. Details of the intervention would be spelt out for all Nigerians. We are talking to farmers to ensure that the prices are drastically reduced. Government has also put in place different measures aimed at making farming encouraging."
Actress, Kate Henshaw on twitter listed out the prices of some foodstuffs in the market and the replies show that nothing has changed yet. See more tweets after the cut.

Stupid! Which of those items are imported? What are Nigerians doing to make sure we have them in abundance? Everyone wants the white collar jobs,we have lands all over,yet we do nothing with them and we prefer to blame the government.If we don't have the right attitude, things will continue to deteriorate.

With the rate of herdsmen attacking people on d farm, nobody wants to go to d farm now becos of fear of losing their lifes.
It's a pity there's no security even on ur own land.

Even d locally made products are so expensive nd when u ask d sellers, they will tell u it's d dollars Dt caused it, I might agree partially maybe some materials used in production are imported but how abt when d exchange rate is lower now, things are still very expensive.
I think this govt is a joke nd there should be an effective consumer protection agency dt can regulate all this.

It's well and may God continue to provide for us all no matter how expensive they get... dee
