CURRENT AFFAIRS: Tomato Price Crashes From N25,000 To N800 Per Basket

It is in the news that the price of tomatoes has miraculously dropped in the market. We learnt that a small basket of tomato, which sold for N25,000 in May, is now going for N800 in Kaduna. Prior to this time,
Nigerians have suffered the high price of tomatoes as a result of scarcity caused by tuta absoluta, also known as ‘tomatoc ebola’ and poor government policies.

This affected the crop in most parts of the north-west, notably Kaduna, Jigawa, Katsina and Kano states.
As a result, the basket prices jumped from the range of N800-N1200 to between N25,000 and N40,000 at the height of the crisis.

 Chairman of the tomato sellers, Abass Mai Tumatur, told newsmen it was a “pleasant relief” for everyone as tomato is now available and in large quantities.

God bless you. If I raised this objection he would mark me hater. Tell him again.

Endy Edeson

@Young & prog: I only ask you about the price in your area. I have done my own research in my area. you know sometimes, what is APPLICAble to "A" is not Applicable to"B"
