ABUJA– The Amalgamated Union of foodstuffs and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria, AFUCDN, has again 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 government at all levels failed to meet its demands within three weeks.
National president of AFUCDN, Muhammad Their who spoke with journalist at the end of an emergency meeting of the union at Abuja, lamented that since governor Yahaya Bello of logic state intervened in the last three months which led to the suspension of their six days industrial action, nothing has been done on the unions agitations.
The union had in March 2021 gone on strike and stopped the supply of foodstuffs to the south following allegations of killings of its members, illegal roadblocks and extortions from its members.
The union carried out the industrial action after the crises that engulfed Shasha in Ibadan, Oyo state
Their said after reviewing the issues the union decided to throw it’s weight behind the union sellers which has already commenced cutting supply to the southern part of the country.
He warned that AFUCDN might not guarantee industrial harmony after three weeks from now, should goverment failed to meet its demands.
Also, the legal adviser to the union, Mr Saleh Mahama stated that the government must do the needful to avert cutting down food supply across the country.
