‘Iced water’ returns as bag of sachet water hits all time high



Amidst the country’s inflation, Nigerians return to the old ways of selling drinkable water in nylons called ‘iced water’ as sachet water sells for as high as 50 naira per one.

As Nigeria faces severe financial hardship, countrymen have since been adjusting to low-spending mode as different approaches seem to be surfacing day after day.
