Meanwhile, in September 2020, Naija News reports that food inflation rate in Nigeria increased by over one hundred and eight per cent (108%) in the last five years.
The sharply increased food inflation rate started a few months after President Muhammadu Buhari took the helm of affairs in 2015.
According to a report from Nariamatic, this was determined by comparing the composite index for the food inflation rate in August 2020 versus same period in 2015. The difference is a whopping 108% increase in the inflation rate, in just 5 years. Within this period, Nigeria’s exchange rate has been devalued by 49%.
