SULAIMANI — Sulaimani Governor Haval Abubakr said on Thursday (March 26) that city residents should not waste food or daily supplies.

“Do not buy more food than you need because it can spoil, which will create a flow of selfishness and economical and financial crises,” Abubakr said.

“We ask producers and shops not to store supplies because if they expire and go bad they will be responsible and it will be bad for the general economy,” he said.

Abubakr reassured the residents that trade and commerce is continuing at the border crossings despite the curfew and that food, oil, supplies are plentiful in the Kurdistan Region and the municipalities will keep a close eye on prices and will prosecute those who engage in price gouging.
