Table Water Producers Association (ATWAP) has announced an immediate effect Increment in the price of sachet water bags from N150 to N200 in Ekiti state.
Tale Oguntoyinbo, the Oye-Ekiti and Ikole-Ekiti Zonal Chairman of the association, announced this in a statement in Oye -Ekiti on Friday, February 25. According to him, the price increase was necessary for producers to bring quality portable water to the doorsteps of consumers, which was not visible with the current cost of materials for everyday water production.
The chairman noted that the decision to increase the price was not an easy one, but reportedly hinted that the government had done absolutely nothing to assist water producers in regulating the cost of production material.
He cited that most cities where nylon and other materials for water are being produced with regular electricity, are selling between N200 and N250 per bag.
