On Monday In Epe, Lagos State, Ram sellers depicted their joy at the demand for Rams by Muslim faithfuls in preparation to Next week’s Eid-el-kabir celebrations.
Mr Yasir Seriki, the leader of the Ram traders told News Agency Nigeria (NAN) during the visit that he and his members were overwhelmed at the level of patronage.
He said that they sellers had expressed fear over what the rate of patronage will be like, due to the recent poor economic development but happily people are buying rams.
In his words “we are happy at the sales. More trailer load of rams will still get to Epe before the festival”.
Yasir observed that the prices of rams were higher in 2021 compared to 2029 and blamed it on the security challenges across the country.
He further Said that people were buying more cows than they bought rams because they are relatively cheaper if one thinks about the quantity of meat that would be gotten. He further Said that cows were sold between N190,000 and N500,000 depending on the size while rams sold for N160,000 and above.
