  1. Most times these stuffs are not this expensive neither is it the fault of our leaders….but the people selling it just want to make excess gain and probably cheat people so they tend to shoot up the price 🤦🏾‍♀️Without considering people

  2. To set the record right, those pharmacies did not just hike the price. They are selling based on the manufacturers’ price( cost price).

    It’s quite unfortunate that what we do in this country is more of importation than manufacturing.
    It was gathered that the said Pharmacy actually procured the drug for 40k and pegged their selling price at 50k. It’s really not their fault.
