”I wish trailer drivers will do their own so the South will know their importance”- Kano gov’s aide declares support for cattle traders strike

Salihu Tanko Yakassai, the Special Adviser on Media to Governor of Kano State, has declared his support for striking cattle traders. 

The union began an indefinite strike today February 25 after their 7-day ultimatum to the Federal government. The traders at a press conference, demanded payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and properties lost during the #EndSARS protest 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.

Reacting to the news via Twitter, Yakassai said he hoped trailer drivers will also embark on the same strike so the South can know their importance.

”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.”
