QUESTION OF THE DAY

The nation has been informed that a system has been put in place where an Agib Bank official will be in place so that groundnuts will be weighed and the tonnage will be recorded and payment made without any delay.

Foroyaa deployed a journalist to cover the purchase of groundnuts at the seccos in Wuli East. We could not discover any secco operating on this principle. We will continue to monitor the situation as the trade season continues.

What we have discovered so far is that harvest has quantity and quality.
