Current Price Of Rice In 36 States Of Nigeria


Amid the sweeping economic policies implemented by President Bola Tinubu’s administration, Nigeria faces a significant surge in the cost of basic food items, notably affecting the national staple, rice.

This price hike has severely impacted the living standards of many Nigerians, with the majority finding it increasingly difficult to afford three meals a day, let alone maintain a balanced diet.

Despite the escalating prices of essential commodities, there has been no corresponding increase in the minimum wage for workers across the country.

The burden of high transportation costs alone consumes a substantial portion of workers’ earnings, leaving them with little to nothing for feeding and accommodation.

In a comprehensive survey conducted by Bahd street vibes across all 36 states, the current price of a 50kg bag of rice—a key indicator of food affordability—was examined.

The findings reveal a significant price disparity, underscoring the widespread effect of inflation and economic policies on food security.

It is important to note that the price of rice varies not only by state but also by brand and quality.
