Federal Government To Ban Nigerian Delicacy “Pomo”

The Nigerian government is said to be making
plans to ban the consumption and sale of ‘pomo’
According to reports, the Federal Government might
be making plans to ban the sale and consumption of
hides and skins, commonly known as “pomo”.
Vanguard reports that the Minister of Agriculture and
Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina called
for a stronger check on the consumption and sale of
the product.
Adesina reportedly made this known at the 3rd joint
anniversary of the Animal Science Association of
Nigeria (ASAN) and Nigeria Institute of Animal
Science held at the University of Ibadan.
He said that this would enable farmers make a bigger
profit because they would able to turn the hides and
skins into leather.
Adesina said:
I am confident that the satisfactory production
levels achieved in the poultry and swine segments
will soon stretch to reach other commodities such
as beef, dairy, micro livestock and animal by
products such as leather, bones, hides and skins.
The drive to turn Agriculture into business and not
merely a way of life is now in full gear, with the use
of mobile phones and e- wallet for input distribution
directly to farmers, farmer’s registration with
biometric identity cards and the Growth
Enhancement Support scheme.
