Covid-19: Consumer Complain over Hike in Prices

Consumers in Ibadan have lamented the hike in prices of consumable commodities which they attributed to the interstate lockdown and other measures initiated by the government.

Speaking with Radio Nigeria in Ibadan two of the consumers, Mrs Mary Adubi and Mr. Bayo Adekunle explained that, the amount earlier expended on food items had increased.

They appealed to the government at all levels to proffer lasting solution to the Corona virus pandemic and ensure equitable distribution of palliatives.

On his part, a baker in Ibadan, Mr. Anthony Awoyode said prices of baking ingredients had increased drastically, thereby forcing bakers to reduce the size of bread for sale.

Mr. Awoyode however urged government to improve on economic activities so as to recover from setbacks caused by Covid-19.
