The Bakers Association of Nigeria, AMBCN, after a discussion with the officials of the Ministry of Agriculture, called off its planned nationwide strike.

According to Umar, some of the agreements reached between the union and the government include the immediate export of 25,000 metric tons of wheat to flour companies for processing and supply to bakers.

The two parties also reached an agreement on revising the plan to produce flour from cassava, potatoes and sorghum.
