Northern group agrees to lift ban on the supply of foodstuffs to the south
The northern cattle and foodstuff dealers under the umbrella of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN), has agreed to end the boycott of food supplies to the south.
The association started its strike action on Thursday, February 25, 2021, asking for N475 billion in compensation from the federal government for the destruction of their businesses and property in Ondo and Oyo States in January and February.
While the strike lasted, the prices of foodstuff, including beef and vegetables, soared in Lagos, Nigeria’s most populous city and economic capital.
However, after an intensive dialogue with the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello on Wednesday, the joint union agreed to call off the strike embarked upon by her members.
The Union led by the president, Dr Mohammed Tahir, Chairman of the union across the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT and critical stakeholders earlier met with the Governor of Kogi State for dialogue which can be considered fruitful
While addressing journalists in Abuja, Dr Muhammed Tahir commended Governor Bello for intervening in the crisis and ensured it was resolved noting that the governor has demonstrated leadership which both parties greatly appreciated.
With this development, the union members will commence the movement of their products especially cattle, vegetables and other foodstuffs to the Southern part of Nigeria. Which implies the end of the strike.
