Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode led the leadership of the union to a meeting with the Chief of Staff to President Buhari in Abuja, in which issues leading to the recent food blockage imposed on the South
were discussed.

Governor Yahaya Bello said working together with Mr. Fani-Kayode, were able to reach out to the major stakeholders on both sides, who had agreed to address issues at stake amicably.

Speaking, Mr. Fani-Kayode said if not for the timely intervention, the crisis, which he described as a very complicated one, would definitely have escalated into a major crisis in the country.
