Bakers Begin Strike On The 27th Of Feb

Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria (AMBCON) has declared that they will commence a nationwide strike starting on Tuesday, February 27 in a bid to push the Federal Government to honour the agreement made with the association in 2020.


Findwhosabi reports that the National President of AMBCON, Mansur Umar, released a statement on Monday announcing the strike.
In the statement, the association also called for the temporary suspension of all types of taxation on the bakery industry at the federal, state, and local government levels.


“The Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria have critically accessed the state of our business operation, consequently demand the liberalisation of flour and sugar importation, reduction or total removal of import duties on major baking materials such as flour, sugar, butter, yeast, etc as applicable to other commodities as have recently been done by the Federal Government and provision of concessionary forex exchange to flour millers and other stakeholders as well as reduction of tariff on imported wheat and sugar,” it said.
It also called for the setting up of a price control and monitoring committee as allowed by the constitution as amended and other conditions that will enhance the ease of doing business in the country.
