After weeks of effortless work, Ogbeh revealed the move by the federal government aimed at addressing the situation at least in part if not totally.

He said: “The federal government will intervene on the prices of rice and other commodities in the next two weeks. We are talking to farmers to ensure that the prices are drastically reduced.
