Photos Of Food Wastage In Delta State Due To Bad Roads

Despite the hard economy in the country it’s sad to see food being wasted due to heavy rains and bad road.

A lady named Adaeze Ogbuenyi is requesting for the government’s immediate intervention in Aballa Uno, Ndokwa East LGA of Delta state, to prevent further food wastage in this difficult economic period. According to her:

“These are farm produce (pictured) wasting in my home town, Aballa Uno in Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta state. Thousands of people are going hungry in Nigeria but these produce can’t get to them due to bad road. This town is a major producer of cassava, yams and plantain. Fish etc..
I want to use this medium to appeal to the NDDC, Delta state government and the Federal government to come to the rescue. The contract for this road has been awarded to Interbau company years back but nothing has been done.”

Hike In Price Of Food Could Lead To Drinking Cassava Flakes

I went to the market for some grocery shopping last week and I tell you, things have gone really expensive. Residents in most Nigerian states are facing hard times.

The price of food items has doubled, with sellers willing to see their perishable items lose value than to sell at the old price.

I fear with the way things are going, even drinking cassava flakes which use to the cheapest meal anyone can ever buy is now very pricey.

With the fuel crisis going on in Nigerian which has really affected not just individuals but also companies, traders be it large or small scale.

The development has brought untold hardship to residents who are now appealing to the relevant authorities to address the problem.
