The Sallah celebration in Plateau State is going on peacefully. Muslim faithful have gone to their various Mosques to pray for themselves, the state and the nation at large.
Most of the Mosques visited by REALITY in the state are witnessing a large turnout of Muslim faithful who have come out to pray despite the security restrictions.
You would recall that the movement of Commercial Tricycles popularly known as “Keke” have been temporarily restricted in the state, owing to the Sallah celebration by security operatives.
However, in all these, the prices of food items have dropped. Garri, has dropped from N450 to N350, Yam Tuber has dropped from N600.00 to N500. 00, Egusi is now N600.00 and a good bargain may bring it to N500.00 per measure.
A bag of foreign rice now sells for between, N16. 500.00 to N17.000.00 in Jos market.
Despite these reductions in prices of food items within this Sallah period in the state, there seem to be few buyers in the market, as there is an unprecedented low level of cash circulation among majority of the masses celebrating.
