Elsie Okpocha, wife of popular Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, popularly known as Basketmouth, has called out President Muhammadu Buhari’s government over the increment in prices of groceries and foodstuffs.
Basketmouth’s wife, in a recent post, said it’s unfair that Nigerians have to constantly deal with the regular increase in prices.
According to her, it’s getting ‘crazier trying to survive in the ‘Giant of Africa’.
She urged the Buhari-led government to help Nigerians by making life livable.
On her Instagram story, she wrote: “Our dear government, do you want us all to leave this country for you.
“It’s unfair how we constantly have to deal with the regular price increment of foodstuffs and groceries.
“It’s getting crazier trying to survive in this country that’s supposed to be the giant of Africa.
“Abeg you people should help us and make life in Nigeria livable .”
We gathered that the prices of foodstuffs in the past few months have continued to increase in markets across the country.
Many Nigerians have taken to social media to lament the cost of eggs, bread, beans and other foodstuffs.
