Beans, a popular food rich in protein and mostly grown in Nigeria has become one of the costliest commodities to be bought in the market. Social commentator and Nigerian activist and former head of New Media for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Deji Adeyanju has lamented on the outrageous increase in the price of beans in the Nigerian market.
The 42-year-old Nigerian took to his Facebook platform to compare how much the cost of beans was during the time of PDP as against APC, the current political party in leadership. According to Adeyanju, Nigerians used to buy a bag of beans for 19,000 naira under PDP but now it is been sold for 100,000 naira under APC.
Beans are not just the only food that is on a high increase, other foods such as rice, tuber of yams, spaghetti, even garri, one of the food that was easy to access and eat have become so costly.
It is said that Nigeria is one of the highest beans producers in the world, if this is so, why has it become so costly that people now find it difficult to purchase? Are things not meant to be cheaper if we produce them by ourselves?
