LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE Nigeria Customs Service has appealed to traders and consumers of frozen poultry products to patronise local farmers amid the organisation seizing more illegal products.
Joseph Attah, Deputy Public Relations Officer, said patronising local producers would create job opportunities for youths as well as boost the economy.
He said this would save Nigerians from diseases associated with consumption of dangerous chemicals used in preserving the banned poultry products.
Meanwhile, the service late Thursday said it had recorded seizures of frozen poultry products worth N14,6 million.
While commending the steadfastness of the operatives in this operation, the management of the service assures the general public of its determination to continue the onslaught against the smugglers of the banned products.
