6 yams were sold for N500

In the post shared about ten years ago, Nkemjikaku said she bought six tubers of yam for N500 and she wasn’t so happy about it.

She shared her experience on Facebook and it elicited mixed reactions from her followers at the time.

“6 yams for N500?! Ok na,” she said.

However, years later, Nigerians remembered the post and lamented bitterly online as they compared the old price she mentioned to the current price of yams.

Many netizens noted that the N500 she used in purchasing six tubers cannot buy any size of yam presently.
