"Northerners seem to be the most honest businessmen in Nigeria. Just imagine producers selling bags of sachet water at 500 Naira around here (Southern). The sellers too sell at the rate of #50, to make double of what they bought. Kudos to man!"

@Kakanfo_ said:

"I guess I was unlucky with those ones selling in Ibadan. Those guys as at last year took N9500 for cement and even had to call us back that it increased to 10k5 and that I should pay them the increased fee and bla bla bla."
