Also, Mallam Mohammed Garba, a resident in Kajuru, was displeased over the suspension.

According to DAILY POST, Mallam Mohammed Garba, said, “What we are passing through in Kaduna today is becoming unbearable. This is a state where there are no jobs, even labourer work doesn’t exist. Kidnapping every day. Even if you have a farm, you hardly go for fear of kidnappers.

“You go to market, prices keep increasing every day. Many people cannot afford to buy foodstuff any longer. Even if you buy, no fire, no firewood, no charcoal. You can’t even ask of gas because it’s above middle-level men in the state.” Information Guide Nigeria

Also speaking, Hajia Bilkisu Umar, a resident in Igabi said, “The only motive for the long suspension of felling of trees is because, the government wants people to pass through serious hunger, poverty, and be subjected to slavery”.

Alhaji Umar of  Birnin Gwari said, “Nobody is comfortable in the state as I am talking with you. Majority, (if not all) are finding it difficult to eat because the means is no longer there. If you are fortunate, and a friend gives you rice or beans, wood, charcoal is another obstacle because you have a government that wants to protect you from bandits. Since the suspension, has bandits stopped?”
