Farming isn’t something new to Nigerians, I mean, a lot of people own little gardens in their compounds. Which was why the viral gist of the Facebook user, Ogechukwu Kate, who processed her own garri was just eye roll inducing.

Getting it straight, farming on its own is necessary for the survival of any nation. In a post on her Facebook page, she stated she’ll rather go to the farm and process her own Garri than buy 13 cups for N400.

A post as such without doubt generated hilarious and even ridiculous reactions like this:

Let’s not forget that garri processing was only done to make life easier for the rest of us.

I’m going to ignore the wife material bullshit being peddled there and ask. Why do people think of costs in terms of a monetary value alone?

Liking stress and ‘sufferhead’ doesn’t make anyone husband or wife material abeg.

The time spent in processing her own garri from scratch is worth way more than N400, but let’s carry on sha.

Because harvesting cassava isn’t beans.

How much garri is she eating sef?

Let’s sha hope she isn’t eating all that cassava but actually making money from all the wahala she’s putting herself through in the name of saving cost.
