Nigeria's food inflation climbed to 20.57 percent year-on-year in January of 2021, its highest level since July of 2008. The upward trend is mainly linked to pandemic disruptions and dollar shortages as well as lingering restrictions on imports of certain food items despite the reopening of the country's borders. At the same time, the incessant attacks on farmers and farmlands have prevented farmers from operating at optimal capacity which causes some shortages of goods. source: National Bureau of Statistics, Nigeria
