NAFDAC bans importation of beans across the country

The Nigerian Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), as part of efforts to regulate and enhance food security, has said it has placed a ban on imported beans across the country.

Acting Director General of the Agency‎, Mrs. Yetunde Oni, on Thursday said during an Awareness/Sensitization Workshop on Safe and Responsible use of Regulated Agricultural inputs for Stakeholders in the North Central Zone in Minna that only beans screened by the Agency will be allowed into the country.

The ban on beans, according to the Acting DG, is not for Nigerian produces, but ‎on the ones that are imported.
