A Nigerian lady has sparked reactions on social media after she said ₦10,000 can no longer cook a pot of stew from scratch in Nigeria.
Taking to Twitter to bemoan the increase in the price of foodstuff in the country, the lady identified as Ore, listed the food items used in making stew and the prices.
“10k can’t comfortably cook a pot of stew from the scratch these days. Crazy.
Remember I said from the scratch
Pepper and tomatoes 2k
1 liter of oil-2k
Gas? Transport to the market?
This has gotten people talking online as they argue that it doesn’t cost so much to prepare a pot of stew, and the lady was exaggerating.
Reacting to the comments, the lady disclosed that she is based in the Eastern part of Nigeria and foodstuff in the East is more expensive than the West.
