 NLC Says Palliative Distribution Crashes Food Prices  in Kebbi 


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Kebbi State Council, has commended Gov. Nasir Idris for judicious distribution of palliatives to civil servants and citizens in the state.

Mr Ahmed Idris, the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Birnin Kebbi at the weekend.

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.

The letter read in part: “On behalf of the entire leaders and members of NLC, Kebbi Council, I wish to write and register our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Your Excellency, for the successful flag-off and distribution of palliatives to both civil servants and general citizens of Kebbi State.

“No doubt, the palliative distribution has brought down the prices of foodstuff in the markets, cushioned the effects of subsidy removal and uplifted the economic status of households in Kebbi.

“We thank you once more for the successful distribution mechanism of the palliatives by your administration. We wish you Allah’s protection and guidance.”

According to the union, this kind gesture by the Governor has reduced prices of foods in the state.
