Price of bag of rice, beans, other food commodities this week


Recent weeks have seen a welcome decrease in the prices of various foodstuffs across Nigeria, a trend analysts attribute to the strengthening of the Nigerian naira in the foreign exchange market.

According to a report by Financial Derivatives Company Limited, the sustained appreciation of the naira has led to a downward adjustment in the prices of essential food items.

The report, released to investors over the weekend by Managing Director, Bismarck Rewane, noted significant rebounds in the value of the naira, which stood at ₦1,260/$ in the official market and ₦1,125/$ in the parallel market.

This improvement in the currency’s value has favorably impacted the costs of rice, sugar, flour, and noodles, among other staples.

This price reduction comes as a relief to many Nigerians who have been grappling with high food costs.

The decrease is especially significant as the Federal Government has not yet implemented a new minimum wage, and many households are under financial strain.

Factors Affecting Food Prices in Nigeria:

1. Currency Valuation: The value of the Nigerian naira against the dollar directly impacts the cost of imported goods, including food items.

A stronger naira means lower prices for goods that are imported or depend on imported inputs.

2. Supply Chain Disruptions: Global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted vulnerabilities in the global supply chain. Disruptions often lead to increased prices due to shortages.

3. Transportation Costs: The cost of transporting goods within Nigeria significantly affects food prices.

Factors such as fuel prices and the state of transportation infrastructure play crucial roles.

4. Agricultural Productivity: Variability in crop yields due to weather conditions, pest infestations, and other agricultural challenges can cause fluctuations in food prices.

5. Market Speculation and Hoarding: Speculative activities by middlemen can lead to artificial scarcity and higher food prices.

Similarly, hoarding by wholesalers in anticipation of higher prices can reduce market supply and increase prices.

6. Government Policies: Tariffs, subsidies, and import bans can all affect food prices.

For instance, import restrictions on certain food items may lead to increased demand for locally produced alternatives, pushing up prices.

Naijahitz, in this article, has deemed it fit to write about the price of bags of some food commodities this week.

Nnamdi Kanu: Methodist Archbishop unveils alleged FG tactics with IPOB leader


The Methodist Archbishop of Okigwe Archdiocese, Most Rev. Biereonwu Livinus Onuagha, has alleged that the Federal Government is manipulating the prolonged detention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as a tool against the Igbo community.

He stated that the Nigerian government intends to exploit Mazi Kanu’s ongoing detention to provoke a strong reaction from the Igbo community.

Onuagha voiced these sentiments as part of the archbishop’s message during the 43rd Annual Diocesan Synod of the Methodist Church of Okigwe in 2024, conducted at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Okigwe, Imo State.

Onuagha lamented the purported collaboration between the Executive and Judiciary branches of government to extend the detention of Mazi Kanu, with the aim of provoking Ndigbo to retaliate.

However, he advocated for a peaceful resolution, urging Kanu to navigate his ordeal with wisdom for the collective benefit of Igbo aspirations.

Onuagha said, “I have returned to discuss the ongoing incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, which is yet another example of the executive arm of government interference with the Judiciary in Nigeria.

“Despite being absolved by the Judiciary of his charges, Nnamdi Kanu remains imprisoned due to the flagrant disobedience of the executive.

The Judiciary has been effectively silenced on this matter as subsequent attempts to adjudicate over what has already been decided are met with resistance from those in power.

“My interpretation of the continued detention of Mazi Kanu by the Nigerian government is that the situation reflects an Igbo proverb “Eji Nwa Okuko arata Nne ya” which means, that when you hold a chick in your hand, you attract the undivided attention of its mother hen either for good or ill intention – whether to protect or to harm the mother.

“The Nigerian government is using Nnamdi Kanu as a pawn against Igbo people, hoping they will react aggressively like a mother hen protecting her chicks.

However, I believe that Igbo people have learned their lessons and instead pray for wisdom for their ‘chick’ (Nnamdi Kanu), to handle the situation peacefully and emerge unscathed from incarceration so that all aims and aspirations may be achieved. “

Onuagha has attributed the current state of insecurity in Nigeria to former President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to effectively secure the country’s borders. 

This, according to him, has led to the infiltration of hostile individuals who pose as herdsmen and has subsequently resulted in the ongoing violence and abductions in the Southeast and Benue State.

Nigeria will become major global economic force under Tinubu – Shettima


Vice President Kashim Shettima has stated that Nigeria will become a major economic force in the world under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Shettima said this on Wednesday while hosting a delegation from the Commonwealth Enterprise Investment Council (CWEIC), led by its CEO, Rosie Glazerbrook, in his office at the Presidential Villa.

He asserted that the Tinubu administration is committed to creating an unprecedented enabling environment for both local and foreign investors to thrive by harnessing the country’s youth population’s resources in digital technology, and improving the electricity supply, among other government initiatives.

Addressing the CWEIC delegation, Shettima said the Tinubu government is determined to transform the country’s demographic bulge into demographic dividends, assuring that the “administration will harness the resources of its young population to build a more prosperous and progressive country.”

He noted that Nigeria is ready for business, and President Tinubu, a pro-business leader who rose from the business ecosystem, is committed to supporting the growth of businesses in Nigeria and ready to create the enabling environment for local and foreign businesses in Nigeria to prosper.

Speaking on the country’s position in the global growth projections, Shettima said, “Nigeria is where the attraction should be for investors all over the world as Nigeria will become a major global economic force under President Tinubu.

He said: “By 2050, Nigeria will be the third most populous country in the world, and only recently, an investment bank projected that by 2075, Nigeria’s economy will be the third largest in the world.

It shows that the trajectory of global growth is facing Africa, and Nigeria will make or mar that transition.

So, the future belongs to Africa.

If Nigeria works, Africa works.

You have come to Nigeria at the right time – a time when a pro-business government is at the helm of affairs in the country, and we are ready for business.”

On her part, the CEO of the Commonwealth Enterprise Investment Council (CWEIC), Glazerbrook pledged the group’s support to the Nigerian government and the country’s economy.

She said, “We want to help boost trade and investment into Nigeria and equally support Nigerian businesses looking out to develop plans for more interactions with foreign partners.

“We would really like to explore ways to encourage the Nigerian government and the business community to take advantage of the commonwealth market across the 56 countries and other partners in the Middle East and North Africa.”

The Vice President was joined at the meeting by the Founder of Zenith Bank, Chief Jim Ovia; the chair of the CWEIC in Nigeria, Mr Olasupo Shasore; the CWEIC Country Director for Nigeria, Mr Obinna Anyanwu; and representatives of partners and members of the Council from the public and private sectors.

EFCC Vs Yahyah Bello: A Well-Deserved Embarrassment – BY BUSY BRAIN 🧠


For the past two weeks, the action of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been making news and forming opinions in the media.

From the Bobrisky money laundering saga to the Cubana Chief Priest case, and now, the EFCC has migrated the media attention from the creative industry to the political arena with Yahyah Bello’s arrest warrant and wanted notice.

The EFCC declared ex-Governor Yahaya Bello wanted for an offense relating to money laundering. The notice of the EFCC indicated that Yahyah Bello’s last known address is 9, Benghazi Street, Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, and the agency asked anybody with useful information about the former governor’s whereabouts to contact any of the commission’s offices across the country.

Wherever Yahyah Bello is right now, he must be laughing at the EFCC as an agency performing Nollywood movies.

Yahyah Bello has seen himself as the sacred lamb in the political corridor who cannot be used for a sacrifice, and this serves as the reason he rushed to the Presidency to evade arrest.

Ironically, disappointing advice issued by the Presidency asking Yahyah Bello to submit himself to the agency stirred his sudden disappearance.

To Yahyah Bello, the EFCC’s wanted notice will be like a Nollywood series, but it is an embarrassment to an ex-governor.

Unarguably, Yahyah Bello is a typical example of the reason youths cannot be trusted with power in Nigeria.

Or how would one describe the action of an opportunist who served two terms governorship tenure and crippled the State to a state of ruthlessness?

In all ramifications, Kogi State should be one of the most developed states in Nigeria with laudable infrastructures.

But the visible infrastructure is the debris of the cement factory smiling at travelers on the way to Abuja.

As a matter of fact, Yahyah Bello’s offense is no longer a convolution.

It is the usual practice of the power mongers with a self-aggrandizement agenda. It is only confusing why he is trying to evade arrest at all costs.

The ruffian show of shame of the incumbent Governor of Kogi to shield his wanted boss from arrest is another embarrassing scene of the 21st century. Worse of its kind.

Funnily enough, at Yahyah Bello’s Abuja residence on Wednesday, a group of armed men, identified as Special Forces, along with officers from the Nigeria Police Force prevented the EFCC operatives from apprehending him with the assistance of the current governor who escorted him out of the location in the governor’s vehicle.

It is pitiable and disheartening that the gesture of Governor Ododo was described as loyalty.

In an actual sense, who should earn Ododo’s loyalty between the ex-governor who allegedly laundered 80 billion Naira and the entire Kogi people?

I think it is a ripe time for ‘Kogi citizens to awake from their slumber.

With the recent moves by the EFCC, it seems the agency is fully ready to walk along the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The agency should take its aggressive war against corruption to the likes of Yahyah Bello in other States.

The wanted notice served on Yahyah Bello is a well-deserved embarrassment.

There is hope for a better Nigeria.

Harry Kane wishes for UCL title after Bayern Munich stopped Arsenal


Bayern Munich striker, Harry Kane, believes the victory over Arsenal should motivate the German side to aim for the Champions League title.

Harry Kane, who left Tottenham Hotspur for Bayern Munich to win a major title, has lost all the domestic titles in Germany, which means that the UEFA Champions League is his last hope of finishing this season with a title.

After Bayern drew with Arsenal 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium, they wknockedout the Premier League club with a 1-0 win in Germany on Wednesday, April 17 courtesy of Joshua Kimmich’s strike.

They are now three wins away from the Champions League title, and they will aim to knock out Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

After the 3-2 aggregate win over Arsenal, Harry Kane told TNT Sports that it was an “unbelievable win.”

Kane continued: “It’s been a tough season for us. We’ve had to fight and grind it out at times.

“We knew we could make a difference with our fans at home. It was a tough game, a tight game. It was a great goal from Josh [Kimmich].

“To reach the semi-finals is a great achievement for us and we can enjoy it. I think in these types of games the first half is always a bit cagey.”

He added, “The expectation here is to try and win the Champions League. We won the league for 11 years in a row so maybe there was a bit of tempo missing.

“That can’t happen. Now we have to enjoy the Champions League and try to get ready for Saturday.”

I’m The Only ‘GOAT’ In Nigeria – Davido boasts


Grammy-nominated Afrobeat singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has claimed he is the greatest musician of all time in the Nigerian music industry.

Naina News reports that music enthusiasts have always argued about the biggest Nigerian artist, Davido, Wizkid, or Burna Boy.

Despite the argument, the ‘If’ crooner has continued to downplay any comparison between him and his colleagues.

In a video shared on TikTok by British-Nigerian content creator, Shopsydoo, Davido could be heard bragging about being the only “GOAT” in Nigeria.

He said, “There is only one GOAT in my country and it’s me.”

Meanwhile, Davido has debunked reports that he was arrested after his show in Kenya.

In a statement released on his official X account, Davido debunked the rumour, stating that he has never been arrested and described the reports as untrue.

Naija News reports that he disclosed that he completed his show in Uganda and Kenya and had since returned to Nigeria.

The ‘Unavailable’ crooner further disclosed that he will seek legal recourse against the media platform from which the fake news emanated.

The statement by Davido read, “Fam, it has come to my attention that false reports regarding an arrest circulated online on April 1st, which has since led to a barrage of calls.

I want to assure my fans that these re- ports are entirely untrue.

I successfully completed my scheduled shows in Uganda and Kenya and have since re- turned home to Nigeria.”

You will be arrested, and your child disqualified – JAMB sends warning to parents over conduct during 2024 UTME


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has ordered security agencies to arrest any parent found close to any Computer-Based Test (CBT) Centre facilities during the 2024 UTME exercise.

The Board’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, gave the directive at the final briefing of CBT Centre owners, on Wednesday.

He explained that the directive has become necessary considering the intrusive disposition of some parents during the Board’s previous exercises.

Benjamin quoted JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede as saying that any parent who disobeys the order would not only be arrested but his ward would be disqualified from sitting for the examination.

He said, “This measure is necessary as it has been discovered over time that many of these intruding parents are facilitators of examination infractions while others have, by their actions, disrupted the Board’s examinations in the past.

“Some miscreants also disguise themselves as parents to infiltrate the centres to perpetrate all forms of infractions.”

Oloyede disclosed that the Board has directed security operatives to work with the centers to arrest any meddlesome parent, who comes near the centers, noting that going by the extant national policy on education, a candidate for the examination must have attained the age of 17 years.

“It is evident that these parents had not allowed their wards to pass through the classes as defined in the document, hence, the determination to follow their wards to the examination venue with the aim of compromising examination officials.

“At any rate, it is clear to any discerning observer that these parents deserve to be sanctioned as they had obviously ‘smuggled’ underage children into the ranks of those scheduled to sit the examination,” he added.

He, therefore, appealed to Centre owners to consider the assignment as a national engagement and not as a purely profit venture, urging them to expose the bad eggs among them.

Naira appreciates, gains against all foreign currencies in official and black market

Fresh data from FMDQ securities shows that the Nigerian currency recorded a strong performance in the official and unofficial exchange markets against all foreign currencies.

Wednesday’s closing rate represents a 6.6% or N75.40 appreciation compared to the previous day’s N1,148.14/$.

Naira also improved its value against the pound sterling and the euro in the official market.

CBN data shows that the naira ended the day with an appreciation of N298.92 to sell at N1,147.53/£1 compared with Tuesday’s closing value of N1,446.45/£1.

While against the Euro, it gained N14.62 to quote at N1,220.17/€1 versus N1,234.79/€1.

It was the same scenario for the naira in the unofficial market as it continued its strong performance.

Traders who spoke to Legit said the naira appreciated N50 to trade at N1,050/$1 compared with the preceding day’s rate of N1,100/$1.

Meanwhile, The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Olayemi Cardoso has said that the apex bank is not defending the Naira with the nation’s foreign reserves.

Cardoso stated this against the backdrop of the recent decline in Nigeria’s foreign reserves corresponding with massive appreciation of the Naira in the foreign exchange market (forex).

There have been speculations that the apex bank pumped forex into the market to dwarf demand pressure and shore up the value of the local currency.

However, speaking at the on-going Spring Meetings of the IMF the World Bank, Cardoso said that his team at the apex bank has no intention to defend to the Naira.

He insisted that they are more focused on having a vibrant forex market so the naira can perform independently.

He explained that the decline in foreign reserves was not to defend the Naira but for settling other obligations.

His words, “Defending the Naira, from every indication is an elephant in some rooms. I will make this as clear as possible.

It is not our intention to defend the Naira.

Much as I have read in the recent few days some opinions about what has happened in terms of our reserves being drawn down, the CBN Defending the Naira, if you take your mind to our philosophy and policy, you will see it will be counter intuitive.

We want the Naira to perform independently as long as we have a vibrant forex market.

“Initially we needed to keep the BDCs going.

So, it is important for people to get forex for school fees, travels and the like.

“The shift you see in our reserve is not to defend the Naira but for things like settling obligations that fell due.

Mind you, that is the reason for keeping foreign reserves, in the first place.”

Cardoso also said that his team is cooperating with the fiscal authorities and that, “Ways and Means is no longer an issue.

He said, “Let me be upfront in saying that the monetary policy is only one side.

It is very clear to us that we need to have a very good handshake with the fiscal authorities.

“For instance, food inflation is not within the purview of the CBN. Ways and Means is now less an issue.”

The CBN boss said he decided to go the orthodox central banking route in order to build confidence in the Nigerian currency.


Police launch manhunt for Abiola’s widow over invasion of Oyo govt secretariat by Yoruba nation agitators


The police have reportedly begun a manhunt for Dupe Onitiri-Abiola, the widow of deceased politician, Moshood Abiola.

She is suspected to be the sponsor of the Yoruba Nation agitators who invaded the Oyo State Government Secretariat in Ibadan.

Those arrested were on Monday, April 15, paraded by the police with the arms, ammunition, camouflage and other items recovered from them.

Oyo State Police Commissioner, Adebola Hamzat, who paraded the 21 suspects, described the invasion as a criminal, unpatriotic and a clear case of treasonable felony and terrorism, which would be meted with adequate sanctions.

He alluded to the group as the one led by Onitiri-Abiola

Tinubu begins disbursement of N200 billion grants


Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government has begun disbursement of the N200bn Presidential Conditional Grant Scheme to verified applicants.

The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Doris Uzoka-Aniete, made this known in a post via her official X handle on Tuesday.

Recall that the federal government, through the Bank of Industry, had said it would be disbursing three categories of funding totaling N200bn to support manufacturers and businesses across the country.

In a progress report, Aniete stated that an unspecified number of beneficiaries have received their grants after an exhaustive selection process, marking the beginning of the phased disbursement strategy.

The minister added that by Friday, April 19, another significant disbursement will be made to a substantial number of verified applicants.

She wrote, “We are pleased to inform you that the disbursement process for the Presidential Conditional Grant Program has officially commenced. Some beneficiaries have already received their grants, marking the beginning of our phased disbursement strategy.

“By Friday, 19th April 2024, a significant disbursement will be made to a substantial number of verified applicants. It is essential to understand that disbursements are ongoing, and not all applicants will receive their grants on this initial date. However, rest assured that all verified applicants will eventually receive their grants in subsequent phases.

Recall that in 2023, President Tinubu announced the grant for manufacturers and small business owners, saying that he was determined to strengthen the manufacturing sector, increase its capacity to expand, and create good-paying jobs.

Two weeks after the announcement, applicants were directed to submit their National Identification Numbers (NIN) as part of the requirements to obtain the grant earmarked to cushion the effect that recent economic reforms have had on businesses in the country.

Jnr Pope’s family may pay up to N40 million to bury him away from the river


Nigerian man reveals that Jnr Pope’s family must provide N30 – N40 million for traditional rites so he can be buried away from the river.

He revealed this in a live video on Instagram, where he claims it is the norm for people who died by the riverside.

According to him, when somebody drowns in water, the river spirits are entitled to the body and if the family decides to bury them elsewhere, there will be consequences.

However, he says they can settle the river spirits but even at that, it is not a foolproof method to avoid the risks.

The eyewitness who was at the scene of the accident claimed Jnr Pope’s family are aware of the customs and refused to bury him at the river.

The river people did not cause trouble with them or try to get the body from them, only informing them of the consequences of their decision.

”I got a neck tatoo so I won’t get a real job – singer, Asake discloses


Nigerian singer and song writer, Ololade Ahmed, often known as Asake, is a well-known Afrobeats artist from Nigeria. He has shared his struggles prior to becoming successful in the music business.

Asake stated in an interview with GQ that obtaining a neck tattoo was the first step towards being unable to obtain an actual employment opportunity.

The singer has a large, noticeable tattoo over his neck that features all five of his stage name.

The 29-year-old artist explained that his tattoos represent determination.

“In Nigeria, if you have a tattoo on your neck, you can’t work anywhere. I can’t work for any company. I can’t sell anything,” Asake explains.

According to Asake, he got the tattoo during a particularly depressing, hopeless, and uncertain period in his life.

“I was tired,” he recalls. “I felt like, I don’t want to keep trying.”

His response to those feelings of doubt was to get a neck tattoo and give himself no other option.

“The second step is just working really, really, hard. You have to understand I got there in two years, but I’ve been working for years,” he says.

“People are counting the days you’re successful.

They don’t count the days you’ve been working toward it. Nobody gives a f3ck about that.”

NLC, TUC threaten strike actions over electricity tariff hike


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has told the Federal Government to prepare for the consequences of the recent increase in electricity tariff.

The NLC has described it as wicked and warned the President Bola Tinubu government to be ready to face the consequences of his actions.

Head of Information, NLC, Benson Upah, said:

“We did say earlier that this tariff hike is insensitive and unpopular.

So if the government elects to continue with the hike or persists in something that is evil, I’m sure it is equally prepared for the consequences of that evil.

“The manufacturers are saying this is going to hurt businesses and make the environment more hostile, and we also said so.

There is no place in the world where high power tariffs have supported manufacturing.

Not even in the developed world.

“So, it completely beats our imagination for the minister to have the audacity to say that the policy would continue.

What this means is that the minister and the President are not in charge.

It is saddening that the minister elected to pursue an unpopular policy.”

“It shows that the minister and the President are not in charge.

The people in charge are the World Bank and the IMF.

They are the ones driving this highly injurious policy.

“So, our leaders should be prepared for the consequences of this highly injurious policy.

That is what I’ll say about this issue for now.”
