National Butchers Association Increases Price of Meat

Sharing is caring!

The National Butchers Association, Oyo State Chapter has said that price of meat would go up effective from Monday.

According to the association the decision was hinged on the high cost of transportation and other rising running costs.

Chairman of the association in the state, Mr Wahab Olayiwola noted that the butchers were not immune from inflation and the rise in the cost of runining the business, hence, the increase.

While urging residents of the state to bear with the development, Olayiwola, however, sought the intervention of the government to save their business from collapse and enable them to live meaningful lives.

“We need the assistance of government, Nigerians don’t rear cows; they supply us. These cows are from neighbouring countries like Chad, Niger, and Mali and we buy using CFA. Also, the cost of transporting these cows is very costly.”
