In her words:
"I bought these 3 tomatoes for N200. I kid you not! 12.5 kg of gas N10,000.
I wrote a long list of items to buy in the market. I ended up canceling some to get the most important because prices have tripled and are way beyond my budget for the market.
It's becoming a norm. Prices of things keep increasing on a per-second basis."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man identified as Edidiong Akpan has caused quite a stir on social media after sharing photos of foodstuffs he claimed he bought with N600.
Sharing the photos of the foodstuffs on Rant HQ on Facebook, the man wrote: "See what #600 gave me after they say women are better home-keepers."
Due to the hike in prices of foodstuffs, many didn't believe that Akpan actually bought the items with N600, and they asked him to explain how he got them.
