Am alive challenge post #156 | Rainy days just got strategized

The climate change this year has got everyone talking.
The flooding in the riverine areas of Nigeria is really getting heavier than ever.
For this month to be precise, fishes are scarce and costly to buy because of over flooding and rising sea/river levels creative more dangers for the fishermen and women.
For those living in the cities, survival and standard of living is now very doubtable. It's even more hard for those earning monthly salaries.
Yeah, Nigeria is not in recession, but the whole thing is more like we're in triplicate kind of recession.
Traders find it very difficult to trade because of poor market structure maintenance, poor road construction, leading to bad roads.
Just today, it rained from around 5 am till some minutes pass 3pm. Most people couldn't go outside because it was heavy and threatening while those who managed to go out attended to very few items on their list of items.
After the rain, I went straight to the market to get some vegetables.
On getting there, I couldn't recognized my customer, simply because she shedded herself with polyethylene bags.

Had it been that the government maintained the shades for them to trade, it would be easier for the buyers to locate what the want to buy and sell for the sellers to have good confidence to come out and sell their products.
Well, it's gonna be alright one day.
Am alive, safe and sound no matter the weather or government.
Thanks for stopping by.

Looking at the vegetable shop looks like we have a lot of similarities. Most of the vegetable sellers don't have a permanent roofed sale store. They are sitting outside and when the rain come, they wrap the whole shop under a polythene bag.

Hope that Government do their job, rather than making themselves rich only, in our countries.

Yeah, that's my major concern.
They just sit at high tables and collect taxes from these sellers.
It's very annoying because, these sellers make more losses in this period of the year.
Thanks doc for stopping by.

Great to hear that you are alive Daniel, but I am sorry that the heavy rains are causing trouble for you, that does not seem like a market at all, but great that they covered their produce, enjoy your day and stay safe, awesome and alive.

sorry to hear that you are having so much heavy rain making it hard for the farmers to provide their products to everyone and the poor conditions that make it almost impossible to sale products in that weather. Take care.

Yeah, for weather and climate, I believe that everything will be alright but for the greedy leaders who have refused to construct better business centers for the citizens. No to that.
We'll voice out until they choose to listen

I'm glad you are well and alive @ddn688, it's unfortunate what is happening in your country with the weather, when there is so much rain you really can't do much, all this affects especially the economy, but you have to be patient and wait for better times to come. Greetings.

Hello dearest friend @ddn688, I'm glad to see you alive under the natural disasters of the Nigeria. Verry sad to hear sellers faced huge struggle to sell their items without shades via heavy rain. We can't control climate changes. However if your government maintained some shades to seller's shops both sellers and buyers would be satisfied. However I think now the heavy rain stopped. Stay alive.

It’s unfortunate that all across Africa, successive governments keep failing citizens. It’s also sad to see that whenever they are on campaign a lot of people follow them. They don’t do enough to solve the problems, just enough to get re-elected.

Yeah bro. They don't even care about those that voted them into power. It's very prominent in Africa and it's not encouraging at all.
Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the draw.

@ddn688, as everyone lets blame it to the climate change.
But that's not the case, weather patterns do changed, but what i see is basic things are missing.
Govt is to be blamed. I hope things get better.

take care and stay safe

Yes. The government is to be blamed for not making provision for these marketers to trade.
It's very bad
