Story from Uji A ILIYASU

Workers of a Kano-based black tea maker, Al-Imam Tea Herbs Pure and Healthy Nig. Ltd, on Monday, protested an alleged incessant harassment and intimidation by a rival company, maker of Top Tea, Promasidor Holdings.

The workers protested to Kano State Government House with a petition to the governor to intervene in their ordeal with the use of security agents by their rivals to torment them over an alleged similar design and trade name with colours.

The General Manager of Z&Y black tea, Abubakar Adam Dahir said they decided to organise the peaceful protest as a ‘’Save Our Soul’’ for Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf‘s intervention.

‘’Maker of Top Tea are alleging that the design of our product is similar to their own, but instead of them going through normal channels, they are intimidating us with security agents.
