Nigerians drag MD of Commodities Exchange Commission for failing to provide current prices of food commodities in the country

Nigerians on social media are currently dragging the Managing Director of the Nigeria Exchange Commission, Mrs Zaheera Baba-Ari. This came after a video which captured the moment Mrs Zaheera Baba-Ari failed to provide the current prices of food commodities in the country. In the video, Zaheera who was asked for the prices of food commodities by Senator Tolulope Odebiyi, but fumbled with a reply stating that she doesn’t have the daily prices of food commodities but gets them weekly. Reacting to this, Nigerians expressed disappointment with the response. According to most of them, the MD of the Nigeria Exchange Commission should at least have an estimate of the prices of food commodities in the market.
