FG Set To Ban Ponmo Meat Consumption



The Federal Government is on the move to ban the sale and consumption of hides and skins…what we commonly know as Ponmo. This indication emerged Tuesday when the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina called for competent regulations that would check the consumption and sale of the product.

The minister who was represented at the occasion by the Director, Animal Production and Husbandry in the Ministry, Dr. Ademola Raji said, 

”I also commend NIAS for its advocacy and public enlightenment programs on Radio and Television that promote value addition in Livestock, as against sale and consumption of primary products alone, particularly with the issue of curtailing the widespread consumption of hides and skins as PONMO which ought to be tanned into leather for a very high dollar return to the farmer and Tanneries. I expect that competent regulations acceptable by all stakeholders will be developed so as to give credibility that our set standards for food safety are being implemented which will boost value addition.”

So even the Ponmo wey poor man dey manage, FG wan come put sand-sand for person garri? Hmmm. Diaris God oh. I just wonder what the penalty for eating ponmo will be? 5years imprisonment maybe....because I chop ponmo? Tahhhh...if i hear.
