Man Cries Over The New Price Of Tomatoes In The North, Saying It Used To Be 800 Naira But Now It’s Just N150
An entrepreneur in the North who sells tomatoes has expressed sadness over the region’ s dramatic decrease in tomato prices.
According to the man’s Twitter account, a basket of tomatoes used to sell for N800 before the embargo was placed on products going to the southern area.
However, the product is currently available anywhere without buyers, and a basket can now be bought for as little as N150.
Despite the dramatically reduced price, they have yet to see any customers interested in buying the product.
Recall that the Miyetti Allah and other northern food sellers’ organizations had declared an embargo on all food products being transported to the south.
From cows to vegetables and other perishable products, the association declared a complete halt to sales until the federal government addresses their demands for reimbursement of damages suffered during the southwest cries.
The southwest crisis began when a Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, threatened to pursue all Fulani herders in the southwest if they did not follow the governor of Ondo state’s order to vacate their forest.
When youths stormed the Sariki Hausa’s home in Ibarapa and wreaked havoc, the crisis had taken a chaotic turn.
His home was destroyed, as were some of his vehicles and animals.
Another clash broke out in Ibadan’s Shasah neighborhood between a Yoruba trader and a northern trader.
Houses were set on fire, and northerners were forced to run for their lives.
With this growth, the Fulani herdsmen’s Association announced that there was no need to continue supplying their wares because they no longer have freedom of association in the southwest region.
However, as seen in the tweet, this decision has been used to threaten farmers, who are the primary victims of the order.
