Celebrities / Nigeria’s Hibiscus Farming Booms As Growers Eye N48bn Earnings by TheMiracleMag: 1:05pm
Praise GOD

Hibiscus farming in Nigeria is fast gaining momentum as price of the flower surged over 70 percent in six months, making farmers eye N48 billion in earnings from export in 2023.

According to the Association of Hibiscus Flower Exporters of Nigeria, the country exported 40 feet of 1,983 containers, totaling 23,796 metric tons.

With the current market price at N1.7 million per ton, Hibiscus farmers in the country can rake in N48 billion (N.7 million multiplied by 23,796) in 2023 to impact their livelihoods.

BusinessDay findings show that farmers are now abandoning growing other crops for hibiscus while existing growers are expanding their production areas as price of the flower has almost doubled year to date.

“Lots of farmers are now abandoning growing other crops to cultivate hibiscus. The prices per ton have almost doubled and this is making farmers grow more of the crop,” Musa Mohammed, a hibiscus farmer in the Andaza area in Jigawa State, said.

The prices of the flower started surging since Mexico removed its export ban of the flower from Nigeria,” Mohammed added.

Mexico imports about 85 percent of Nigeria’s total hibiscus, according to the Association of Hibiscus Flower Exporters of Nigeria (AHFEN). The country had in April 2021 lifted its ban on the export of Nigeria’s Hibiscus flower into Mexico.

Idris Abubakar, a forty-five-year-old farmer in Jigawa State, told BusinessDay that he is unable to meet up with the current demand of the flower from his customers.

He ended up paying other farmers to grow hibiscus for him as the crop is gaining traction in the international market.

“I had to expand my production area and also employ other farmers to grow hibiscus for me by giving them money because I can no longer meet up with my customers’ demand that is increasing daily,” he said

Nigeria’s hibiscus cultivation has surged recently, as hibiscus farmers that were hitherto thrown out of business owing to the ban imposed on Nigeria’s exports of hibiscus to Mexico are now returning and new entrants finding the price attractive are also entering the market.

The price of Hibiscus flower sells between N1.7 million and N2 million as against N800,000 and N1 million.

Hibiscus is a versatile crop used for the popular zobo drink that can also be made for a list of by-products. Hibiscus jellies, jams, fruit pastes, traditional medicines, teas, syrups and refreshing drinks can be found in almost every market stall in West Africa.

The flower grows nearly throughout the year, though its peak production is during the dry season of November to April in the country.

It is mainly grown in Jigawa, Katsina, Bauchi, Kano, Maiduguri, Kebbi, and Sokoto with Jigawa being the largest producing area.

In Mexico, it is used to produce its popular Mexican drink, ‘Agua de Jamaica’ which is made from steeped hibiscus flowers, diluted with water and sweetened with sugar.

“Nigeria is the only country in Africa that is accessible to Mexico at the moment. And though we have lost some years to the ban, we are coming back gradually,” Tunji Lawal, president of AHFEN.

Hibiscus is grown during the normal regular planting season. Hence, once the rain starts, the planting season for the crop starts.

The planting areas are Jigawa, Katsina, Bauchi, Kano, Maiduguri, Kebbi, and Sokoto with Jigawa being the largest producing area. Once harvests commence in October, the crop remains available (in storage) till August to September.

We are witnessing how ipob terrorist are killing Nigerian army and police but we never see a single igbo leader speak against this evildoers.

But if Nigerian army react to this killing hope they will not come out and say Tinubu is killing them.

Thats because nobody had shown them any evidence, beyond mouth, that IPOB is involved in violence

You can not detect how people should leave in their home, you can't detect for anybody if their conditions are not favourable to you look for another place.

You write like an illiterate. You think like an illiterate. You can't even spell well so I don't expect an uneducated person like you to understand logic. I am just wasting time with someone like you.

I repeat again, I hope once the same rule is applied to Igbos living outside Igboland, you will also support it and when the Igbos complain you will tell them in your bad English that they also can't "detect" to other people and should leave the place. I hope you will agree.

Politics / Re: FG May Pay N1.68tn Fuel Subsidy, Marketers Forecast N900/litre by RepoMan007: 1:04pm

I have read your article, nothing new there... just the usual rethorics; Corruption in the sector, Fuel smuggling to neighboring countries, subsidy being too costly for govt etc.
I have argue with you on this topic here on NL. It seems you're working for some people.

1. What stops govt from tackling the corruption going on in the sector? I thought they are the ones in charge? Egypt, Angola, Algeria, Libya subsidizes oil in their countries with no noise of corruption in their oil sectors. Why is our subsidy different?

2. During Trump's administration, he collaborated with Mexico to send 26 thousands Mexican troops to the border to checkmate illegal immigration. You can't tell me that govt in Nigeria can't drastically minimize oil smuggling.

3. About subsidy being too costly for govt., Then govt should divisify to earn more FX. Egypt, Angola, Algeria and Libya still sell cheap fuel in Africa. In fact Egypt with 112m population produces lesser oil than we do, they rarely export. They even import crude oil to compliment their local consumption yet pays billions of dollars to Petro subsidy this year. Subsidized Fuel is sold at about N301 in Egypt as of today.

Here are reasons why I think subsidy or partial susidy should be a right in Nigeria.


Subsidized oil should be a fundamental RIGHT in Nigeria because "petro and diesel" are tied to electricity generation in Nigeria. Millions of businesses in Nigeria rely largely on it for power generation and survival. A country that has stable electricity can't remove subsidy and Nigeria with poor power supply will follow suit.
You stated in your previous post that Ghana sells fuel at over N1000 per liter. Ghana citizens doesn't need fuel for something as crucial as power generation due to their govt provision of stable power supply.

Govt over the years has failed to fix our refineries making us to rely heavily on imported fuel purchased with scarce Fx. Your 2022 article stated that the landing cost of fuel as of then was N396 now the news on this post is talking of N900 due to the exchange rate. What it means is that in the absence of subsidy, fuel can even be sold for 5k or more per liter in the nearer future as Naira continue to fall.

Is it not idi.otic for politicians in Nigeria to says that corruption in oil subsidy is the main reason they want to end subsidy and the mu.mu masses in Nigeria accepted it. Why not tackle the corruption there first?

All over the world, govts subsidize essential products and basic commodities for it's citizens.
The fellow you having a convo with is too partisan to reason straight. It takes severe daftness to peddle the lie about refineries not making profit if petrol remains subsidized.
The govt buys from refiners outside Nigeria as it stands. The only difference with where we are headed is that they start buying from local refiners. That doesn't stop local refiners from selling at prevailing market rates to govt or at slightly cheaper rates because transport cost and import duty widens their profit margin further. They can even sell internationally but the fraud you talking to has made the habit of peddling that daft and dangerous lie on this forum over his last half dozen monikers.

Someone who doest know the role of CBN in economic growth or how money system works. He is just another western brainwashed element.

Talking about the smuggling, It is a form of corruption and can be dealt with. If dealt with, instead of trying to smuggle fuel outside, outsiders will prefer to relocate to Nigeria for cheaper production and start producing thereby creating employment, wealth and forex earning locally.
