RIPAN gives reasons for hike in price of rice

The Rice Processors Association of Nigeria ( RIPAN), Kano State Chapter, has attributed the hike in price of rice from 19,000 to N23,000, to the increase in price of paddy rice.
Alhaji Abba Dantata, a member of RIPAN stated this in Kano Monday during a joint press briefing with Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) over the hike in price of rice in in the state.
“There is no way we can sell 50kg bag of rice below N23,000; cost of production is so high.
“From April to date, a ton of paddy rice, which used to cost N180,000, now costs N225,000,” he said..
