The Special Adviser on Media to Governor of Kano State, Salihu Tanko Yakassai, has declared his backing for striking cattle traders.
Recall that the union embarked on an indefinite strike today February 25 after the expiration of their 7-day ultimatum to the Federal government. The traders during a press conference, demanded payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and properties lost during the #EndSARS crisis and Shasa market chaos and dismantling of all roadblocks on federal highways due to problems its members get subjected to when carrying out their duties.
Yakassai who reacted to the news on Twitter, said he wished all trailer drivers will also embark on the same strike just so the Southerners can know their relevance.
”I endorse this strike %100. I wish trailer drivers will do their own too so that the South will know their importance and stop attacking them whenever there is chaos in that part of the country, with nobody being held accountable nor the victims being compensated.”
