During a meeting with officials from major foodstuff dealers, the Chairman of the Agency, DIG Sani Usman Muhammad (Retd), emphasized that such practices would not be tolerated as they could worsen the hardships faced by the people.

The chairman pledged to take decisive action against those involved in these activities, outlining plans to ensure the accessibility and affordability of food items.

Additionally, he called upon all merchants to collaborate in finding solutions to the issue of high prices, particularly for the benefit of the less privileged.

In response to the warning, Abdullahi Mohammed, the chairman of the Bauchi Traders and Artisans Association, urged members to refrain from hoarding and inflating prices, cautioning that failure to comply would result in legal consequences.
