tomato is the new economic index.

Now, you can exchange three like this TOMAT3 for a bus ride from Ikeja to Yaba.

Or for two bags of pure water.

Or for two bottles of thinned colas.

Or for four robo-robo chicken eggs.

Or for two one-hundred-naira recharge cards.

Or for one litre of petrol — with some change handy to munch on the new, revised, slimfit gala.

My friend says Jollof rice is out for now; fried rice a better deal.

We will be glad things have changed when the people can reach out for basketfuls again.

Until then, tomato.
