Prices of perishable items in Kano have crashed due to excessive hot weather, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Some of the perishable item sellers told NAN in Kano that they had no option but to cut down the prices to avoid waste of the produce.

Malam Sani Usman, one of the sellers at ‘Yankaba market, Kano, said they had to bring the prices down for the produce to be disposed.

He said the current weather was not friendly to the commodities, adding that sellers had no facilities to keep the produce for a longer period.

“So, the only way to avoid waste is to sell the commodity below its price,” he said.

Another seller of perishable items, Malam Baballe Ali, said he had been operating at a lost due to the hot weather.

Meanwhile, a measure of fresh pepper is sold for N250 as against N500 due to the weather, while that of fresh tomatoes
