European Union Bans Importation Of Nigerians Foods


dried fish and meat

The European Union (EU) has banned some Nigerian foods from being exported into Europe, PunchNG reports. The food items banned from Europe till June 2016 are beans, sesame seeds, melon seeds, dried fish and meat, peanut chips and palm oil. This is a setback for a nation that desperately needs to expand its export basket to boost domestic agricultural activities and create jobs.

Why Did The European Union Suspend These Food Exports From Nigeria?

The first answer someone gave to is that, “they hate us and don’t want us to prosper. They look for every opportunity to make us look bad.” I don’t know about this but what I know for sure is that they need these agricultural products for their own food too and would not want it to stop coming to them.

What is now the problem? Why did they ban these agricultural foods?

  1. I feel the time it requires before the expected food items land at their on port could also be the same time the products last here on our homeland before consumption. As we all know, charity begins at home and may not end here.
    NAFDAC may have to convince Nigerians it not the case @ least in most cases.
    Thank you.

  2. I believe the products in our local markets contain the same unhealthy pesticide. The NAFDAC has never been straight in their dealings.

    What we don’t know won’t kill us is the notion I believe they’ve lived with for d longest time. The EU ban is a good nudge in the right direction assuming NAFDAC decides to act.

  3. What are we really talking about,the european union have ban the export of some of our product.why can’t NAFDAC ban foods that is not good for nigerian rather than allowing the importation and then giving silly orders!
