The group said the action could be good since it is a temporary measure to cushion the effects of hunger in the land.
Speaking in a release he personally signed and issued to newsmen in Kano, the President of the Union, Bature AbdulAziz, reminded the government that with the problems of forex, even with the import duty-free window measures taken, the prices of rice and other commodities will still be high for the common man in Nigeria.
Reports show that the Federal Government had announced the suspension of duties, tariffs, and taxes on some essential food items imported through land and sea borders.
