Cattle Traders Begin Strike Today

Cattle and Foodstuff dealers under the aegis of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) has begun a nationwide strike.

According to reports, the strike began today following the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum given to the federal government to attend to their demands.

It was gathered that the union had demanded payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and properties lost during the #EndSARS protest and Shasa market chaos, and dismantling of all roadblocks on federal highways due to problems its members get subjected to when carrying out their duties.

Announcing the commencement of the strike, Grand Matron of AUFCDN, Hajia Hauwa Kabir Usman asked the police should not to disturb the task force of the union who will carry out enforcement of the strike by ensuring that no food and cattle were moved from North to the South.

He said;

“The leadership of the union has already made a strong plan to ensure that all our exits (our borders) between the Northern and Southern part are closed.

“Every truck that will go out has to be checked. If you carry any food or cattle, you cannot take it out except you take it back or be destroyed there. None of the security agents should dare intimate our task force members because if they do, we will fight it legally.”

Usman vowed that the union would not compromise on its demands.
