Coronavirus:  Food Scarcity Looms In Anambra

Raymond Ozoji, Awka

Following the ban on public assembly by the Anambra State Government due to the spread of coronavirus, the President of Anambra Market Women Association (AMWA) Mrs Nkiru Duru has announced the postponement of official inauguration of the Association which was slated to take place next month.

Duru who stated this in Awka yesterday, expressed fears that commercial activities would be affected which would ultimately lead to food scarcity.

Duru said, “I wish to urge mothers to begin now to stock their homes with food items before it is too late.

“Most people who sell food stuffs due to the coronavirus may not do business because people now suspect one another.”

She also urged Anambra women to go into family prayers as well as market line prayers in order to avert more spread of the virus.

“While we the Anambra market women commend the State Government for its actions against corona virus in our state, I urge our members to please go into prayers in order to checkmate the spread of the virus.” Duru noted.
