Dollar crash: Wamakko appeals for reduction in prices of goods

 

SENATOR Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko ( Sokoto -APC) has called on marketers and traders in the country to reduce the prices of goods as the US Dollar has crashed in the country, while the Nigerian Naira gained more value.

Wamakko spoke during Ramadan breakfast with some Commissioners and the Academia at his Gawon Nama Sokoto residence on Tuesday.

According to the Senator who represents Sokoto North Senatorial District, the traders cried out that the Dollar had gone up against the Naira, but it has now crashed to as low as N1,200 as against $1 to N1,700 before.

While noting the plight of the citizens, Wamakko appealed to the leadership of the traders’ association especially in Sokoto state to prevail on their members to lower the high costs of the goods for the development of the nation.

“I am appealing to you to appreciate the light of the citizens and lower the high costs of the goods for the development of the nation.”

Those ain attendance at the breakfast include the Commissioner of Tourism, Aminu Magaji Bodai, that of Religious Affairs, Dr. Jabir Sani Maihula and his Home Affairs counterpart, Sharifu Abubakar Kamarawa among others.

Also were some Management staff of the North-West University, Sokoto led by the Registrar, Umar Abubakar Garun Babba, politicians and scores of APC loyalists as special prayer was offered by Sheikh Bello Buhari Siriddawa for Allah’s continued guidance and blessings in the state and the country at large, a release by Bashar Abubakar , Special Assistant Media and Publicity to the Senator said.
