Nollywood actress and award-winning filmmaker, Uchenna Nnanna, recently expressed her disappointment with a bag of rice she purchased.
Taking to her Instagram page, the mother of two shared her shock at discovering that the bag of rice she bought for N55,000 was not what she expected.
Uche went on to explain that she had a realization and decided to count the number of painters of rice in the bag.
Alongside her housemaid, they measured the rice and found that they had been deceived.
She expressed relief that she had taken the time to measure the rice, as without doing so, she would have suspected her staff of stealing from her.
Uchenna Nnanna expressed her frustration with the current economy and lamented how Nigerians continue to cheat each other.
urged her followers to pay attention and measure the rice they purchase in order to avoid being cheated.
“I don’t know where we are heading in this country. This ground is no longer leveled. The economy is not smiling and Christmas is around the corner. What do we call this that a bag of rice in Nigeria is over N50,000? The one I bought over the weekend was N55,000 for one bag of rice.
See what I saw when I bought one bag of rice. It will shock you people to see what I discovered. For the very first time, I asked the guy that I bought the rice from, how many paints are in a bag and he said 12. I don’t what made me ask that question, but I was led in my spirit to ask. I got home and decided to measure it and it was only 9. Is it from the company or the person that sold it to me? I was mad like how could I get just 9 painters from a bag of rice that is meant to be just 12 painters?
If I didn’t measure the rice, it would finish on time and I would be asking what went wrong and probably think my workers are stealing from me.
Everybody the economy is bad, do not allow anybody to cheat you. If you are buying a bag of rice let them measure it before you go home. Check where you’re buying from, know who you’re buying from.
Cap rice I am calling you out, is it from your end or those that are reselling”.
In her caption, she expressed how tired and disappointed she is.
“It’s really shocking what I discovered after buying a bag of rice as Hugh as N55,000. I’m really tired and disappointed”.
