The Prices of goods and services in Nigeria have continued to soar despite the gains of the Naira against the Dollar in the foreign exchange market.
According to the National Bureau of Statistics, headline inflation jumped to 33.20 per cent, and food inflation surged to 40.01 per cent in March.
The implication is that Nigerians continued to pay more for food and other services in March.
NBS said there is a rise in staple foods such as Yams, garri, rice, beans, etc.
Similarly, the rise in energy costs such as fuel, diesel and, recently, electricity tariff hikes has further propelled inflation.
Meanwhile, the Naira has maintained appreciation against the Dollar since last February 2024.

At least four people suffered "non-life-threatening" injuries, police say. The attacker was also hurt. The incident was captured on a church livestream and quickly triggered unrest in the suburb of Wakeley.
