Food Scarcity Loom As Foodstuff Dealer Set To Strike
There might be food scarcity in some parts of the country starting from next week as the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AFUCDN) threatened to stop food supply to the South and other parts of the country.
The union said it would carry out this threat within three weeks if governments at all levels failed to meet its demands within three weeks.
National President of the AFUCDN, Muhammed Tahir, who spoke with journalists at the end of an emergency meeting of the union in Abuja on Tuesday evening, lamented that since the Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, intervened in the last three months, which led to the suspension of their six-day industrial action, nothing has been done on the union’s agitation.
The union had in March 2021 gone on strike and stopped supply of foodstuffs to the South following allegations of killings of its members, illegal roadblocks and extortion from its members.
The union carried out the industrial action after the crisis that engulfed Shasha, in Ibadan, Oyo State.
