Warri Residents Lament Hike In Prices Of Goods, Services 

Rita Enemuru, Reporting

RESIDENTS of Warri and environs have lamented the persistent and worrisome daily rise in prices of goods and services in Delta State.

A cross section of food vendors and consumers across Uvwie and Warri local government areas decried the situation, calling for an urgent intervention.

A hairdressing service provider, Mrs. Stella Aazun, in a chat, stated that people no longer wanted to have a hairdo basically because hair accessories are now too expensive.

“They prefer to put on a wig, week in, week out, leaving us without business,” she lamented.

Other vendors spoke in the same light, expressing how the prices of different commodities have kept going up in a matter of weeks.

Stonix News reports that the frustrating experience has jacked up the cost of acquiring skills and services which are not directly affected by any external factor.

Mrs. Joy Ivie, a teacher and government worker, stated that she was surviving on credit facilities from vendors who knew her.

According to her, she was not sure of her capacity to pay back, saying that her salary only lasts for a week.

Lamenting the cost of foodstuffs, she said: “Cost of beans is now N2, 600, garri N1, 300, a bottle of oil N1,800 and yet, our salaries have not increased.”

They called on both the state and federal governments to do something urgently to alleviate the suffering of the masses, particularly with the destruction of farmlands across the country by the recent floods.
