There has also been a phenomenon of pricing differential between elitist and sub-urban markets. For example, a bag of garri in Sura is 5%-10% higher than Oyingbo. Increased logistics cost has resulted in steeper prices in markets that are farther from the production source.


This is likely to result in a spike in the headline inflation rate for May (above 12.5%) scheduled to be released next week.


In the slides below, the FDC Think Tank discussed these and other burning issues on Channels TV Business Morning programme.
