Kaduna State residents have raised the alarm over imminent hunger as fuel scarcity has affected the supply chain of foodstuffs in the state.
Several businessmen and women who sell foodstuff and ingredients have cut their supplies as a result of the scarcity of notes and fuel.
Mrs. Rhoda Usman, who sells foodstuff such as beans, yams, and rice, said, “Most of my suppliers have stopped supplying foodstuff because they don’t accept transfers, and I don’t have cash for business transactions.”
According to her, it’s becoming difficult for me, just as I locked up my shops since my customer refused to send me food.”
In the same vein, Alhaji Ibrahim Yusuf, who sells yam in Kaduna market, said he could no longer go to the village where he buys yam in large quantities because locals have refused to accept old currency.
Mrs Ruth Hassan, who sells palm oil, said she had since stopped selling oil because of scarcity of new notes, adding that she even locked her shop
Following the development, Naijacrawl observed that the prices of foodstuffs have continued to escalate on a daily basis.
