Gov’t officials raids shops, markets for unfortified products in Katsina

The Standard Organisation of Nigeria office in Katsina has embarked on the raiding of shops at the Katsina central market and shops along Jibia road for evacuation of unfortified products, Daily Trust reports.

Food products not fortified with Vitamin ‘A’ are set for evacuation in view of their lack of basic nutrient for growth and development of children and women.

Speaking with newsmen during the exercise, the state coordinator, SON, Adamu Usman Abubakar said so far no arrest has been made as there is relative compliance for now.

“Last year, seven persons got arrested and substantial products evacuated, this year so far we are seeing compliance,” he added .

According to him, an intelligence unit of the agency has been activated in the state for possible raid and arrest of culprits adding that ‘ continues surveillance is been carried out with a view to fishing out culprits.’

‘We are collaborating with sister agencies like NAFDAC, CPC and international partners to ensure that the fortification programme of the present administration succeeds”.
