    The scarcity of dollar caused by Niger delta agitation by January coupled with crude oil slump in international market, crashed the dollar by 300%. The effect of this on Nigerian staple foods and the ban of rice, flour and other staple foods to achieve local production lead to the rise in the price of other alternatives like beans, yam etc. The massive production expected from local rice production this year is expected to bring down the price of others food stuffs.
