The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN), has agreed to resume the movement of food supplies from the North to South, six days after the union embarked on a nationwide strike.
The union had commenced an indefinite strike, blocking the movement of food items from North to South, following the expiration of a 7-day ultimatum issued to the federal government on the need for safety of its members.
The group also cited the recent Shasha market crisis in Ibadan, Oyo State as one of the reasons for its action.
The New Diplomat‘s checks revealed that the agreement was reached during a meeting of the leadership of the trade union, with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State in Abuja.
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode was also at the meeting.
