Six formerly cheap food items in Nigeria

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported about six formerly cheap food items that are no longer affordable for average Nigerians.

Over the past few years, there has been a notable surge in the prices of vital essential foods in Nigeria. This phenomenon took on added complexity following President Bola Tinubu's declaration of ending fuel subsidy payments during his inauguration on May 29, 2023.
