WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the leadership of the union reached the agreement at an ongoing meeting with some governors in Abuja on Wednesday, March 3.
A youth leader of the cattle dealers in Lagos identified as Abdullahi Tom disclosed that Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, is among the leaders who appealed to them to end the industrial action.
