Northern Traders Agree To Lift Ban On Food Supply To South

Barely one week of its resolution in stoppage of food supply to Southern region, the leadership of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) has agreed to end the blockade of supplies to the south. 

The union reached the agreement at an ongoing meeting with some governors in Abuja on Wednesday, DailyTrust reports.

 Abdullahi Tom, a youth leader of the cattle dealers in Lagos, revealed that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State is among the leaders who appealed to them to end the industrial action.

 This is coming few hours after it was reported that onion farmers in Kano State are lamenting following the restriction. 

The report noted that sadly, a big sack of onions that was selling for N35, 000 a few weeks ago and N10, 000 just before the strike now sells for N7, 000
