Welcome to this week’s episode on Prices Of Foodstuff In Nigeria 2022.

The commodity market was a bit fair this week as there was a slight drop in prices of Maize, Guinea Corn, Egusi and others…

While our target market for this week’s update still is Manigi Market, it is important to bring to the public that the activities of bandit terrorists, kidnappers are affecting market operations in most parts of Niger State.

Naija News understands that most of the markets in the state except Mariga, Kaboji, Manigi and Kontagora market are currently shut down.

Locals could no longer convey their harvested grains to the market for sale because they get attacked daily by bandits and kidnappers whenever they attempt to visit the market.

The development is affecting the price of commodities and traders are lamenting bitterly.

However, amid fears of the unforeseen, the Manigi Market which is our current major target was operational yesterday.

While other foodstuffs increased in price, Naija News noticed there was a slight drop in prices of Maize, Guinea Corn and Egusi.

Interestingly, Petrol is being sold at the market and the pump price is currently pegged at ₦205.
