Bags of Rice is no longer N35,000, After Custom Officer's Disapperance in Ogun State.

In some part of Nigeria, Ogun State Precisely, a bag of rice was conventionally sold between the range of thirty five thousand naira (N35,000) to forty thousand naira (N40,000) before. Lately something mind-blowing happened and it affected the price at which rice was sold in the state. An unforseen thing happened around the borders of Ogun State. Custom Officer’s were said to have disappered from the borders without knowing their whereabouts. Indigenes of Ogun State who knew custom officers  left didn’t let the moment pass without making good use of it. They quickly crossed the border and purchase huge amount of rice and turkey and some even trooped in fairly used cars.

 

According to findings gathered, I deducted that, what many people quickly purchased were bag of rice in great quantities, instead of other items such as Turkey and fleets of “tokunbo Cars”. This is due to the excessive hike the price of Rice in every part of the country.

 

Some persons said the bag of rice is sold as  eighteen thousand naira (N18,000) to twenty five thousand naira ( N25,000) in some Eastern and Southern States across the country.

The new price of a bag of rice in Ogun State drastically changed from thirty five thousand naira (N35,000) to five thousand (N5,000) and above. Some of those who were lucky enough to have gotten quite a good number of bags when the custom officers disappered the border are reselling at a higher price. An instance here is the case of a person who purchased a bag of rice for eight thousand naira ( N8,000) and now resell at twenty thousand naira (N 20,000) and above. That’s a huge gain sincerely.
