NANTS leadership on tracking commitment of political

actors to farmers and Traders Charter of demand on

Saturday in Katsina.

The legal practitioner said that it was unnecessary and

immoral for traders to increase their commodities price due

to minimum wage increase.

“Therefore, every trader must avoid the temptation of being

lured into such selfish act as a means of enrichment.

“Every trader must realise that hiking prices on one

commodity automatically raises prices of other ones,” he


The president says no trader deals on all items of need and

once a trader raises the prices of his or her commodity,

others will jerk up the price of their commodities.

Ukoaha said that the farmers and traders had made

arrangements with the political actors in the country before

the 2019 General Elections.

and traders entered into an agreement.
