Nigerian master bakers and caterers are set to initiate a nationwide strike starting on February 27

Date:

Bakers and Caterers across Nigeria have declared a nationwide strike set to commence on February 27, 2024.

The announcement came during a press conference in Lokoja, where Adeniyi Gabriel, the Chairman of the Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria (AMBCN) in Kogi, disclosed the decision.

Gabriel highlighted the challenges faced by the industry, emphasizing the need for measures such as liberalizing flour and sugar importation, reducing or eliminating import duties on key baking materials, providing concessional forex exchange, supporting local cultivation of wheat and sugar cane, and implementing financial relief for bakers affected by the pandemic.

 

The Association specified that unless the government addresses these concerns, they will proceed with a complete cessation of their services from the specified date.
