- A Nigerian lady was grilled on Twitter after she tweeted that N10,000 is not sufficient to make a pot of stew
- People who criticised her action said that there is no way one would need N500 worth of onions to cook a sizeable stew
- There were those who said that she arrived at such a huge calculation because she probably learnt how to cook on YouTube
A young Nigerian lady with the Twitter handle @Ore_akiinde on Tuesday, March 5, stirred massive reactions on social media when she mentioned that N10,000 is no longer enough to cook a pot of stew.
In reaction to people's criticism, the lady said she meant from the scratch and that the price of chicken, cooking gas, one litre of oil, and others need to be factored in.
Things are now expensive
She pegged the price of chicken at N4,000. There were some people who believed in her opinion that N10,000 is not enough going by the high cost of things in the market.

Woman quits job to become a cook
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Itoro Effiong-Bright had an interesting story about how she moved into the telecoms industry, first as a 9mobile staff before landing a lucrative job at Africa's largest telecoms operator, MTN.
Itoro revealed she was combining cooking with her job at 9Mobile and later, MTN, which leaves her tired as she heads to work on the days she would be on duty.
