The former Buhari’s aide stated this via his X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @BashirAhmaad on Friday, February 16.

He added that prices at Salad Stores can stay for months, unlike other stores that frequently adjust their prices.

He, however, said the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) knows better than most Nigerians.

“While one may not fully understand all the reasons behind the sealing off of the Sahad Stores, but they are one of the best in this Abuja. I don’t think there are many supermarkets with better prices than them. Prices there can stay for months, unlike many other stores that frequently adjust their prices almost on a daily basis.

“It is worth noting that the government’s regulators know deeply and better than most of the majority.”

Nigerians react

@hansatua

First off, we don’t really know why it was shut down and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions. Everyone that has been to that place knows they got the best price.

@Iamumarfaisal

It has to be sth else probably, but not related to price. Everyone here has testified about their leniency on pricing and I doubt if we all can come up with a singular falsity at this time. The authority in charge and off course Sahad will release to the public the situation at hand.

@layhamoh

1 out of unknown reasons… an individual bought out all bags of sugar from the store last 3 weeks which instantly caused a crazy hike in the price of sugar. ‍♀️

But yes they have the best price across all supermarkets/convenient stores in Abuja.

@DanjumaPara

Gaskiya fa I still don’t understand cause it has always being consistent with their prices over the years.
