A Ghanaian man is unhappy with how food vendors particularly fried yam sellers go about their business.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on TikTok, the young man @oboycitizenofficia1, was captured lamenting over how a fried yam seller is making an abnormal profit at the expense of the ordinary Ghanaian.

He said he went to buy fried yams but after seeing what the woman sold to him for 3 cedis he felt it would be better to buy uncooked tuber of yam and check whether he has been treated fairly.

The man then stormed the market where he bought a tuber of yam and made one of the traders slice it into smaller pieces just of sellers of fried yam do.

“Sometimes we complain that the government is not helping us but we the citizens are also part of the problem. How can you go to Yeji , buy a tuber of Yam for 8 cedis and then come to Ashiaman and sell a slice of it to me for one cedi”
He continued “so with the fresh tuber of yam I bought I was able to get 61 slices. My question is how much does oil cost for some of the food vendors to be doing this” he said with a grim look on his face.

everyone does what she likes because there are no checks and control systems and even punishments for those who raise prices above market price

THEO

One of the biggest problem we have in this country is monitoring systems to control prices .. people price things any how

This can only stop if a price control mechanism is put in place but unfortunately for a country like Ghana that won’t wash
