Ilorin ram sellers lament low patronage

Date: 2021-07-16

Barely few days to Eid-el-Kabir celebration, ram sellers of rams are lamenting low patronage in several parts of Ilorin, the Kwara capital.

A NAN correspondent who visited some ram markets in various parts of the Ilorin on Thursday reports that several ram sellers complained of low patronage.

There were large numbers of various sizes of rams, an important item for the celebration, in all the markets visited, waiting for prospective buyers.

Markets visited included Ipata cattle market, ram market at Mandate ultramodern market, Adeta ram market, Ode Alfa-Nda ram market, and Zango ram market.

Prices of rams were similar in almost all the markets as the smallest rams were sold between N35,000 and N40,000 while the biggest rams were from N100,000 to N150,000.

Alhaji Abdullahi Olufadi, a ram seller at Ipata cattle market, told NAN that sellers were facing low patronage despite the fact that Eid-el-Kabir was a few days away.

Olufadi attributed the situation to the poor economic situation in the country.

"By now we are supposed to be recording fantastic sales but buyers trickle in like one or two persons buying one while some cannot afford the price," he said.

A legal practitioner and potential buyer, Mr Tunde Olumoh who spoke with NAN said he had not bought his own ram yet due to the non-availability of funds.
