Niger Gov Stops Interstate Selling Of Bulk Food Items

Governor Mohammed Bago of Niger State has banned the sale and distribution of food items and farm produce in bulk from the state to other areas of Nigeria.

He announced the ban during a press briefing, stressing that the sale of food items in bulk resulted in scarcity and food starvation within the state.

Bago said, “Trucks who come to pack or buy foodstuffs from our villagers in bulk should be halted for now. We have stopped mass purchases from our local markets, all our local governments, from now henceforth.

“Anybody found doing that, we have given some security agencies go ahead to confiscate those trucks and share the food to the people.”

With the fall in the value of the Naira, the cost of food items have skyrocketed across the country, thereby, causing hardship.
