FOOD SCARCITY: GOVERNOR YUSUF ABBA APPEALS FOR REOPENING OF BORDERS                                                                                                             11-03-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                     Gov. Abba Kabir Yusuf, of Kano State has appealed to the President Bola Tinubu to consider the reopening of the county’s borders for importation of food stuffs to alleviate the suffering of Nigerian masses.

The Governor stated this while receiving the comptroller general of customs who paid him a courtesy call at government house Kano.

He lamented the critical condition of hunger and starvation in the country which was caused by the rampant hike in the price of commodities in the Country.

“We wish to appreciate the President’s intervention on the ongoing national food initiative which he considers Kano as the host for the initiative to be launched believing that the programme will cushion the effects of food scarcity if implemented”

According to the Governor, another immediate intervention that can make food available and affordable to our teaming population is for the Federal Government to consider the reopening of the borders and allow free importation of commodities.

Governor Yusuf emphasized on the prevalent hardships faced by the populace, particularly during the sacred month of Ramadan, underscoring the necessity of opening the borders to alleviate their distress.

He also expressed satisfaction with the Customs Service’s initiative to commence the distribution of food items to the citizens of Kano amidst the prevailing hardships and hunger experienced by many, urging the Customs Service to ensure that this benevolent act reaches those most affected.

Furthermore, the Governor assured the Customs Service of his unwavering support in all aspects, particularly those that would yield positive outcomes for Kano and Nigeria at large.

In his remarks, Adeniyi reiterated the significance of fortifying the bond between the Nigeria Customs Service and the Kano community, emphasizing the Service’s deeper commitment to collaboration and mutual understanding.

He pledged to implement policies aimed at refining business processes and fostering engagement with stakeholders.

While in Kano interacting with various stakeholders, CG Adeniyi also stated that the Service had made comprehensive arrangements to address the current challenges of food scarcity and hardship in Kano by distributing essential food items to the state’s residents.
