President Muhammadu Buhari has received the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.
This was disclosed on Twitter by a Personal Assitant to the President, Buhari Sallau, who also shared photos from the meeting.
“President @MBuhari receives Governor of Kogi State Alhaji Yahaya Bello and with them is the Chief of Staff, Prof Ibrahim Gambari during a closed-door meeting over the suspension of Food dealers Strike at the State House Abuja,” Sallau captioned the photos.
Bello had played a role in the suspension of the food blockade which prevented foodstuff in the North from crossing down to the South.
This was after he held a meeting with the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers in Nigeria.
According to the AUFCDN President, Muhammad Tahir, the strike was suspended after the Federal Government promise a compensation of N4.75bn.
The Federal Government also promised to protect the AUFCDN members and stop all forms of multiple taxation and intimidation from security officials on the highways.
