While speaking to a PREMIUM Times correspondent, one of the hawkers in the Maryland area of Lagos on Thursday morning, attributed the development to the ingenuity of the Nigerian spirit.
The hawker who identified himself simply as Joe, said; “We have to sell and make money. People sold it too when Baba (Obasanjo) wrote a similar one to (Goodluck) Jonathan back then. Everyone wants to read it.”
It was gathered that the prices varied between N300 to N500 and more, depending on the seller.
