Reasons for The Escalating Prices of Foodstuffs in My Country by : 12:42 am On May 15, 2018

There has been public outcry against the escalating prices of foodstuffs in your area. Write a letter to your representative in the House of Assembly, stating the causes of the increase and suggesting ways of improving the situation.


There has been a public outcry against the escalating prices of food stuffs in Bade/Ajadia constituency  in recent time. As our representative, I feel that if this rising cost of food stuffs is brought to your notice, you will use your good offices  to find a suitable solution to it. Once of the reasons for the sharp increase may not be unconnected with the introduction of the sales tax imposed on farmers. Consequently, in an attempt to pay the tax, many farmers increased the prices of their produce.

The poor state of rural roads coupled with the high cost of transportation may be the other reason for the high cost of food stuffs. Well, if you permit me I wish to suggest some way s  of improving the situation. One of the ways is to slash the sales tax by half of cancel it entirely because farmers are complaining and the masses too. Rather than the sales tax, fertilizers and other farming inputs should be given to encourage them.

The Public works Bureau (PWB) should be made to construct and reconstruct rural roads. This has two advantages. It makes the road motorable and also makes the foodstuffs get into the market faster than it would have been. I  wish to state our unflinching support for you and your party.
