Kingsley Moghalu, a former presidential contender, criticized the rising expense of food in ‘Buhari’s Nigeria’ after purchasing a bottle of groundnut for N1000.
He used to buy the same bottle for N600, according to the political economist. When he gasped after hearing the new price, the woman told him that the price of the bottle he used to buy has now increased.
