Prices Of Rice And Other Foodstuffs Crash (See New Price List)

Prices of foodstuffs have begun crashing in Jigawa as latest survey of the popular Hadejia market in the state shows. The market survey reveals also that a bag of rice now cost N8,500 at Hadejia as against the previous N11,000 that it went for.

It has been reported that the prices of food items have crashed in Hadejia, Jigawa state.

Quoting News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), PM News reports that the crash in food price is as a result of ‘a significant increase in the supply of agricultural produce to the market’.

According to investigations by NAN on Tuesday at Hadejia market, food prices were down by about 30 percent. Now, a bag of millet goes for N14, 000 as against N18, 000 while a bag of paddy rice went for N8, 500 as against its previous price of N11, 000.

Maize and sorghum were sold at N11, 000 and N13, 000 down from their old prices of N15, 000 and N17, 000, respectively.

PM News quotes NAN as saying that its investigation showed that the crash was necessitated by the commencement of harvesting of food crops and the corresponding increase in the supply of food items in the market.

It also reports that farmers recorded high yields due to appreciable rainfall and good weather condition recorded this cropping season.

Traders, who spoke with NAN at the market, attributed the drop in prices of food items in the state to increase the supply of fresh produce from the farms while a grain dealer, Alhaji Kassim Adamu expressed confidence that prices would further go down because of the harvest by farmers.

“The supply keeps moving up and it will push prices further down,” he said.

Meanwhile, Nigeria in talks with the Chinese import-export bank China Exim Bank for a $21 billion loan to finance its 2016 budget and develop new infrastructure projects to boost the ailing economy.

This was announced by the minister of budget and national planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma following his visit to China in July and President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to China in April.
