Further analysis of the report showed that the average price of 1kg of tomato increased year-on-year by 2.79% and decreased month-on-month by 3.99% to N294.36 in November 2018 from N306.59 in October 2018.

Notably, the slight pressure on the food inflation sub-index can be attributed to rising demands for Agric. products in the run-up to December festivity, offsetting the improvement in the supply of agricultural produce in the run-up to the month in view as cases of farmland flooding waned. On the other hand, the slowdown in the y/y core inflation subindex can be attributed to continued stability prices in the other components of the subindex except for energy prices which remained largely volatile during the month.
