Palliatives distribution spoils market for food traders in Kebbi – NLC

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kebbi State Council, has lauded Gov. Nasir Idris for judicious distribution of palliatives in the state.

This, according to the union, has forced down the prices of foodstuff across the state.
Mr Ahmed Idris, the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Saturday.

Idris quoted the Chairman of NLC, Kebbi State Council, Alhaji Murtala Usman, as saying this in a letter of appreciation dated Oct. 19, addressed to the governor.
