Kogi Bakers Reject Flour Price Hike


Master Bakers Association of Nigeria, Kogi Central chapter, has rejected the recent increase in the price of flour by the flour mill companies in the country.

Spokesman of the association, Abdulbaqy Badamasuiy, in a statement issued yesterday lamented the indiscriminate hike in the cost of flour by the companies without any consideration for the final consumers and bakers in the business.

The association said between December 2015 and January 2016 alone, flour mill companies have increased the cost of flour by N1, 600:00, a situation which he said has crippled the baking industry in the state.
The association appealed to the federal government to prevail on the companies to revert to the original price and quality of the product before the increment so as not to subject bread consumers to further hardship.

Meanwhile, the association has directed all its members in the area to stop production to register their protests over the hike in the costs of flour.
