Today, buying in bulk is very important. Have you noticed that the price of goods sometimes goes up by the hour? Its like the Nigerian economy is in a free fall and drawing us down with it.
I just read that in Bama, Borno State about 200 people have died of starvation in the past month. One of the reasons for their death is that in so many areas of the North East, farms have not been cultivated for months due to insurgency.
So, this means that there is great risk of the current food scarcity worsening. The price of foodstuffs may keep shooting up for the foreseeable future. As you know, we as a nation abandoned agriculture for many, many years.
And now, the foreign exchange and the savings needed to make food imports are not easy to come by. Even the government itself is not finding it easy to feed its elected officials.
Buy In Bulk
I cannot overemphasize the importance of bulk buying at this time for our welfare. Should prices continue their upward climb, you will always be assured of having food to eat.
In a situation where a bag of rice is now above the salaries of some Nigerians, people should be extremely careful. ina situation where many farms lie abandoned, we should think and plan carefully.
Diversification From Oil Is More Important Than Ever
We should really as a country, go back to farming. That is why I am praying that the government facilitates ranching for our herdsmen so that many farmers can go back to their farms without fear.
A return to agriculture is more important than ever. If you need free information on how you can secure cheap government farmland to start your business, the Prince And Princess Charles Offokaja Foundation is ready to help. Contact us via 0810 0606 316.
Let us keep praying that the situation doesn’t reach what I read that happened in Venezuela, where people were struggling for foodstuffs that belong to other people.
