The former Governor of Sokoto State and APC leader in the state, Sen. Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko has called on the traders to avoid hoarding food items for the interest of the public and for Allah’s mercies.
Sen. Wamakko was speaking shortly after returning from Abuja for an official engagement.
The Senator further  urged the marketers to shun hoarding foodstuffs that cause more hardship to the lives of the people in the and by extension to the entire country.
The former Governor further explained that it is high time for the  traders to fear Allah in their daily businesses and reduce hardship for the  less-privileged while conducting their business activities.
The statement by Bashar Abubakar also said the Senator frowned at those traders who export food items to other countries with the intention of getting higher profits.
He added that those hoarding and exporting foodstuffs should be advised to desist from such nefarious act in best interest of the public.
Sen. Wamakko charged the traders at Kara Market to stop the habit of refusing to offload goods when they were brought from some other parts of the country  with the sole aim of making more profits.
 He,however, urged them to offload all the food items brought to make the market competitive, hence force their prices to come come down.
He called on Islamic scholars to intensify fervent prayers for Allah’s intervention in the menace.
The APC leader revealed that plans are underway by the Ahmad Aliyu-led government to provide welfare to traders, women, youths and other people of the state, which he said will certainly bring more succour to the lives of the public.
A special prayer was offered by Mallam Bashir Gidan Kanawa for the help and good health of Sen. Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko.
Sen. Wamakko returned to Sokoto  alongside the Minister of State for Water Resources and Sanitation, Barrister Bello Muhammad Goronyo, Commissioner for Revenue Mobilization and Fiscal Commission, Bello Abubakar Wamakko,  APC Zonal Chairman, Sokoto Central Yahaya Buhari Siriddawa, other APC stalwarts and supporters in the state.
