……..Sand is to sell for N25,000
Following our publication on the increase of sand in Mosogar Kingdom,one of our brother name withheld has given us details on the reasons why the sand is increase.
- He noted that the cost of dredging the sand is higher
- Cost of maintaining and running vehicle is high
- He said the new price has not be determine or fix,saying is never 30,000
*He said Oghara and Sapele are on warning strike too,because they want to increase their own sand too
Read his message:
Good afternoon bro, I’m texting because of this sand increase of a thing, one thing we should understand is that thing are just becoming more expensive everyday , let me make some examples for you, months ago we do buy Desiel 190 per liter , but talking to you right now , Desiel is now 320 per liter, before we do buy dredger engine 550k , but right now engine is 1M naira , before we do buy belt 3k for 1 but now belt is 7k for 1 , before we do buy engine oil 19k-22k depending on the product, but now oil is 30k-40k for 25 liters, before we do buy power take off for 350k but right now is 750k , so if you should think of all this , we are not the one producing them , we do buy , now if the cost of this things has increased, what are we to do to keep the operation going , we have to increase the sales of sand as well so we can meet up the engine maintenance demands as well , and don’t forget we also pay dues to chiefs and also to state governments and also to NIWA(National inland Waterways Authority)
Not me , our union is still deliberating on the price
But I know is not that 30k that guy said there
We haven’t conclude or disclose any amount yet
So I don’t know where that guy got 30k from
Note: This is the view and possible reasons for the move to increase the sand from the N22,000 and I don’t know what will be the new price yet.
We are making this publication to balance the story.
BREAKDOWN OF THE CURRENT PRICE OF SAND @ N25,000
1.Cost of Sand from Dredger N 10,000
2.Loading of Tipper. N 3,000
3.Driver N 1,500
4.Diesel 360 x 10litres. N 3,600
Ticket Jesse to carry Sand from
Jesse to Mosogar:
- Jesse ticket. 2000
6.Mosogar Ticket. 2000
7.Police/Army settlement. N,200
Total cost N22,300
Thus: N25,000 – 22,300
Balance is N2,700 this is what the owner of tipper is collecting for the motor
Remember during the time of Goodluck the cost of Tipper was N4.5M and now,Tipper is N17M in the market.
How can somebody used N17 Million to buy tipper and be making N2,700 and parts of maintaining the motor is not there ?
This is why they increase the sand from N22K to this current price of N25k
