What can our kids eat for breakfast now? – Nigerians cry out as Bread makers embark on strike over the high cost of materials

Nigerians are in different ways, reacting to the news of the Premium Breadmakers Association of Nigeria (PBAN), comprising owners, Managing Directors, and Partners of premium bakeries in Nigeria plans to embark on a four-day warning strike beginning on Thursday, July 21, 2022.

The strike decision was taken by the bread makers due to the increasing prices of baking materials in the country. 

The entrepreneurs who disclosed that it has become impossible to operate bakeries in Nigeria asked the Federal Government to stop charging a 15% Wheat development levy on wheat import.

President of the Association, Emmanuel Onuorah, and Public & Industrial Relations Officer,  Babalola Thomas also asked NAFDAC to review downwards the N154,000  penalty charged to bakeries on late renewal of certificates.

Asides from calling for the stoppage of multi-agencies regulation of the bread-making industry, PBAN also asked the federal government to grant members access to grants and soft loans being given by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to Minor, Small, and Medium Scale Enterprises (MSMEs).  

Reacting to this, some Nigerians are lamenting on the hard economy and difficulty in feeling their children who need bread as an easy breakfast.

Adaora Ukoh wrote: “Sad. Bread now retails for N1,200.”
