Recent months have seen a noticeable increase in food costs, which has sparked protests in a few states around the nation.

The ordinary Nigerian’s purchasing power has decreased as the country’s economic crisis gets worse.

sources state that President Bola Tinubu’s announcement during his inauguration on May 29, 2023, regarding the removal of subsidies is what’s causing the increase in commodities prices.

In a video that Alabareports saw posted on social media, a farmer clarified that one of the main factors for the rise in food items is insecurity.

According to the farmer, several of his colleagues have given up on their careers and sustained significant losses as a result of bandit attacks.

The typical Nigerian now finds it difficult to afford the foods listed below.

The most popular food in the world is rice, which is also a mainstay in Nigeria. It was reasonably priced until recently and very filling.

When manual laborers needed a meal that would help them stay full for an extended period of time, bread was their go-to option.

But this formerly readily available food item is progressively turning into a delicacy.

Nigerian bakers have expressed their dissatisfaction, pointing to an increase in the price of baking supplies over the past year, which has caused many businesses to close and created instability in those that are still open.

A bag of flour used to cost N37,000, but it now sells for N42,000, while sugar used to cost N62,000, but it has surged to N72,000.

As a result, a loaf of bread that used to cost N200 now costs N500, and a family-sized sliced loaf that used to cost N800 now costs N1,200.

Beans: The most popular plant-based food is beans.

But suddenly, even for those with modest incomes, a once-affordable dish has become expensive.

A mudu of white garri, which used to cost N600, now sells for between N1,000 and N1,200 in major city markets, while a mudu of yellow garri, which used to cost N500, now fetches between N900 and N1,000.


Eggs have evolved into a delicacy while being a high-animal protein food that is especially advised for developing children.

The high cost of bird feed has been cited by poultry farmers as the cause of the price increase.

A crate of eggs used to sell for between N2000 and N3000, but today they can cost anywhere from N3,800 to N4,000, depending on the size.
