Nigerians Consumes Over 3 billion bottles of Beer Per Year – Who Drank It?1 min read
WHO DRANK IT?
Multi-million naira question!
Nigerian Breweries recorded sales of almost N300 billion in 2018 while Guinness is expected to record sales of N275 billion.
Totaling almost =N600 Billion (About $3 billion) which is about 3% of our GDP.
That is over 3 billion bottles of beer, and when distributed across 170 million people is about 200 bottles per person a year.
The point is that an average Nigerian is either a Christian or a Muslim, both religions enjoined adherents to avoid alcohol, so who drank N600 billion worth of alcohol in one year?A country with more churches and mosques than anywhere else on the continent.
Please who drank it?
This is interesting because it excluded sales from other breweries, like paraga, and other assorted foreign and local drinks like Ogogoro, Ogidiga, Regal, Orimalu, Jedi, monkeytail, Palm wine, Dongoyaro, Alomo, Agbara, Babyoku, Bajinatu, Laliga, Kerewa, striker, etc.
If these are added, only God knows…!
Please answer this one million bucks question:
Who drank all these?
