The Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria (AMBCON) has declared its intention to commence a nationwide strike on Tuesday, February 27. In a statement issued on Monday, the National President of AMBCON, Mansur Umar, emphasized that the strike would proceed unless the Federal Government fulfills the agreement reached with the association in 2020.

One of the key demands put forth by AMBCON is the temporary suspension of all forms of taxation imposed on the bakery industry at the federal, state, and local government levels. This request underscores the association's concerns regarding the financial burden imposed on its members, which they believe is hindering their operations and viability.

The decision to initiate a nationwide strike highlights the seriousness of AMBCON's grievances and its determination to compel the government to address their demands. The association's move underscores the significance of ensuring favorable conditions for the bakery industry, which plays a crucial role in the nation's food supply chain and economy.

As the strike date approaches, stakeholders will be closely monitoring developments, hoping for constructive engagement between AMBCON and the government to find a mutually beneficial resolution to the issues at hand.

“The Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria have critically accessed the state of our business operation, consequently demand the liberalisation of flour and sugar importation, reduction or total removal of import duties on major baking materials such as flour, sugar, butter, yeast, etc as applicable to other commodities as have recently been done by the Federal Government and provision of concessionary forex exchange to flour millers and other stakeholders as well as reduction of tariff on imported wheat and sugar,” it said.

It also called for the setting up of a price control and monitoring committee as allowed by the constitution as amended and other conditions that will enhance the ease of doing business in the country.
