Rice Prices Drop in Kwara as Naira Strengthens

Date: 2024-04-19

As reported by TVCNews, the strengthening of the Nigerian Naira against the US Dollar is beginning to make waves in Kwara's bustling Mandate Market.

Notably, the prices of imported rice have seen a marked decline, offering relief to consumers. From #67,000 per 50kg bag just a week ago, the price has now dropped to between #52,000 and #54,000, reflecting the positive impact of the Naira's appreciation.

Mandate Market, a prominent trading hub in Ilorin, has historically been a vital source of various food items, particularly grains.

Traders at the market confirm the noticeable reduction in rice prices, attributing it to the recent upswing in the Naira's value against the Dollar.

However, while imported rice sees a price drop, locally produced staples such as beans, Garri, corn, millet, and Guinea corn maintain stable prices or experience slight increases.

This phenomenon is attributed to ongoing security challenges affecting local food production, underscoring the complex dynamics of Kwara's food economy.
