North-The Northern Onion Farmers and Marketers in Nigeria have threatened to cut the supply of the onions to the Southern States of Nigeria unless the Federal and State governments put in place modalities to compensate them for losses occasioned by attacks in the Southern States.
The Chairman of the Onion Trading Association, Aliyu Umar, gave the position of the group at the presser event in Sokoto on Sunday.
In his statement he said that, as from Monday, June 7, 2021, the supply to the South would be cut off.
President of the association, Aliyu Umar, made this known to journalists at a press briefing on Sunday in Sokoto State.
“We are calling on the state and Federal Government to restore law and order in the state, and we are calling on the good people of the southern part of Nigeria to live with the Hausa community in peace as we are only there for our lawful businesses.
“We also call on state governments to collaborate with fed govt to set up a committee to investigate the incident that led to the loss of lives and property of the Onion Association members.
“Furthermore, if the government fails to adhere to what we are saying, we are shutting the supply of onion to the entire south by Monday the 7th of June 2021”. He said.”
