Is hard na. Garri, gnut and pure water combination can be obtained with like 50 naira. This is how people survive this days on this kind of low budget. Well for your information,I just drank garri,I tried to eat my beans by itself but the garri kept calling and beckoning and eventually I gave in,I don’t think beans can go without garri.Well Lassa fever,here I’m.

Imagine life without garri I don't think anything can separate me and my local golden morn What about the one we've bought since last year? 🤔 Is this a joke or sth? In a country where garri in its various derivatives is consumed by millions on a daily basis, you are asking people to stay away from it..... 🤷🏾‍♂️🙈🙈

In some states the federal government has only sent representatives on fact-finding mission even as the disease rages . Some of these … The states don't have to wait for Federal Government.

Story for the gods. you've told us these before. We Don hear nah Baseless!!! I must drink Garri. I just bought a consignment yesterday. The key to avoiding Lassa is in eradication of the rat vectors, avoid contaminated food not in avoiding gaari, any food can be contaminated. The garri that have been in the house or the ones in the market yet to be purchased? With the level of hardship and hunger in Nigeria, garri is a must have and must drink. Why this caught my attention is that, since the last time I drank garri I've been feeling ill.

So Nigeria can't even save GARRI pápá 😒 I don't think Igbo can take this advice seriously 😂 I can only minimise You lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
