Impressed by the recent appreciation of the naira over the dollar, former governor of Sokoto state and Senator representing Sokoto north, Aliyu Maatakarda Wamakko, has appealed to marketers to fear God and reduce the prices of goods to make life bearable for Nigerians. 

Wamakko, who spoke at his Sokoto Gawon Nama residence shortly after breaking the Ramadan fast with some commissioners and the academia, said traders now have no justification to keep increasing prices of goods.

He stressed that traders still selling at skyrocketing prices should equally consider the plight of ordinary Nigerians.

The Senator further appealed to the leadership of the traders’ associations in Nigeria and Sokoto in particular to prevail on their members in the interest of the citizens and lower the high costs of the goods for the development of the nation.

A statement by the spokesperson of the Senator, Bashar Abubakar mentioned those at the breakfast to include the Sokoto  State Commissioners of Tourism,  Aminu Magaji Bodai, that of Religious Affairs, Dr. Jabir Sani Maihiula and his Home Affairs counterpart,Sharifu Abubakar  Kamarawa among others. 

Also at the breakfast were some Management staff of the North-West University Sokoto led by the Registrar, Umar Abubakar Garun Babba, among other politicians and scores of All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists. 

A special prayer was offered by Sheikh Bello Buhari Siriddawa for Allah’s continued guidance and blessings in the state and the country at large.
