NAIJ.com came across an interesting post shared by a Nigerian man living abroad after he had made an attempt to purchase food from an African store.
Most people living abroad tend to long for anything that reminds them of home, especially the food they were accustomed to before leaving.
If there's anything that'll cause 'jealousy' between a Nigerian in diaspora and someone living in the country, it is the ease with which one can get access to staple foods, at even cheap rates.
A Nigerian man living abroad took to Twitter to share his experience at an African store.
According to @t0bismith, he literally had to save money before he could buy his second tuber of yam.
Sharing the tweet he wrote:
"After saving and investing for six months proud to say I just purchased my second tuber of yam in America.."
