Bello Shagari has always stood up for the Northerners and he couldn't sit and watch how the millions worth of farm products perish in the North due to the embargo. It's clear that the farmers were not the ones who imposed the food ban, it was some Northern youths. However, the ban has been causing more harm than good as farmers kept losing on daily basis. The Southwest is the highest consumer of the Northern farm products and the embargo slowed down their business and economy. However, Shagari got infuriated by the government's silence over the issue.
He wrote, "The So-called food blockade from the North to South. The Presidency, Senates, House of Representatives, Governors, and Political Parties are all silent. Wonderful!"
According to some of the comments, it can be deduced that the South West is contemplating whether to go into farming. You can also share your thoughts too.
Do you think the government is silent about the food embargo as claimed by Bello Shagari?
