5 Food Items That Show You’re A Wealthy Nigerian

November 7, 2020

Inflation (and bad governance) is seriously flogging Nigerians. Food items that used to be cheap and very affordable have suddenly become expensive and scarce. Now, we are being forced to seek supplements for these food items or avoid them altogether.

If you have any of the food items listed below, know that you have escaped poverty. Just do giveaway.

1. Onions.

The sudden scarcity and high cost of onions is now making people question its importance in food. What flavour does it add? Any health or nutritional benefits? Country don hard.

2. Rice.

This keeps skyrocketing. And Nigerian rice is really the ghetto of ghetto, but what can one do? This is why it’s very annoying when you consider that some people in power are hoarding rice and using it as birthday dash.

3. Turkey.

Frozen food generally. Fish has become something else, what then shall we say of turkey and chicken? I often wonder how large families are coping in these difficult times.

4. Tomato paste.

This one won’t cease to surprise me. One day it was N50, and then N70, and before we could say #EndSARS, it had already jumped to N100 and N150. I have deliberately stayed off cooking anything that will need it. Let me respect my financial impediment and maintain my lane.

5. Palm oil.

A bottle of this used to be around N350, N400, depending on your location. It has jumped by a few hundred nairas. Let’s not even mention vegetable oil.

See ehn, if you have any of these foods at home, you are wealthy.
