Plants and animals have the innate capacity to produce what they need to sustain life. For a naturally endowed, intelligent people with a rich cultural heritage as Nigerians not to be able to provide enough food for their young and old is unnatural.
Nigerians must demand a change, first in their education, second, in their leadership and third,their individual value- judgment.
It is not education that liberates, but education of the right kind. Someone once said "when the incapable leads the capable, no one is capable". If we deserve better and we know it, we must not settle for less and we must not go hungry in the land of plenty.

The minimum price indicated in this data is not correct or is probably based on supermarket prices.

The fact is, there are a lot of inexpensive products of the same quality sold mostly in open markets. However, not every open market is accessible to foreigners.

Its really alarming how the prices escalates everyday. I dont know if the governments are existing.i bet they got to do something to help the people.

I don't understand how it could be so expensive to eat in Nigeria. Something need to be done. These good people are starving over there. There is no work not even for University graduates. How does the government expect these good people to survive on these prices. I bet the government is not starving. In Mexico I could live for two weeks like a king on a hundred American dollars in Nigeria I would starve after the second day on a hundred American dollars. Help your country and your country will help you. Nigeria needs more jobs and better prices.
