Lagos Bakers Threaten To Increase Price Of Bread

Published

on

Bakers in Lagos State have made a call to the federal Government to intervene in the price of baking materials, adding that the current situation may lead to an increase in the price of bread.

In a statement jointly issued by the chairmen of the Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria, Kosofe and Surulere, Lagos, Taiwo Akintola and Ibitoye Oladapo, respectively, the group expressed sadness over the rates of baking materials due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the bakers, the cost of the materials is affecting the bakery business, as many bakeries are no longer to make profits.

“A bag of flour that cost N9,000 before COVID-19, now goes for N13,000, while a bag of sugar now costs N24,000 as against the former price of N13,000.

“Butter is now N12,000 against the former price of N7,500, while milk, which was hitherto N29,000, now goes for N52,000. And there is an increase in the bread packaging cost, which is now N12,000, against the former price of N10,000,” the bakers said.They added that the prices of salt, yeast and other baking materials had hit the rooftop.

The association explained that the instability of foreign exchange, high cost of diesel and other baking materials, were reasons given by flour millers for the hike in the prices of baking materials.They said appeals to the millers and others for reduction in prices had not yielded any favourable response.

“And that is why we are pleading with the Federal Government to intervene in this matter by talking to flour millers and baking material sellers to bring the prices down.

“Master bakers association is one of the largest employers of labour in the country and most of the bakeries are folding up; many Nigerians working in the sector are already losing their jobs,” the group added.

The association maintained that if the situation continued, the prices of bread might be increased by 60 per cent.

Don’t Joke With COVID-19, Buhari Tells Govs

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari has charged State Governors not to joke with the ravaging corona virus pandemic as there was much to it than expected.

The President who made this call during a virtual meeting with the Governors enjoined the Governors to step up the process of enlightening their people on the seriousness of the infection by ensuring they stayed safe.

Buhari also called on the governors to work hand in hand with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to ensure that they followed the measures targeted at containing the spread.


The nation’s number one citizen, told the governors that the pandemic was “beyond technology, power and resources”. Hence, if bigger countries with huge resources were overwhelmed by the pandemic, smaller countries like Nigeria should be prepared maximally.

Other issues as relating to security and the economy were discussed. The meeting was attended by all thirty-six state Governors led by Dr. Kayode Fayemi who is the Chairman of the forum and the Ekiti State Governor.
