FG loses N600bn annually to illegal poultry importation – Reps

The House of Represen­tatives yesterday raised the alarm over the im­portation and consump­tion of foreign poultry products in the country, saying the Federal Gov­ernment is losing over N600 billion annually to the illicit activity.
In a motion sponsored by Hon. Abubakar Amu­da-Kannike, the House was disturbed that the smuggling of poultry products constituted serious health hazards such as renal and liver failures as well as sev­eral other cases of diges­tive and intestinal health issues as a result of their process of preservation.
But in an amended motion moved by Has­san Saleh, he called on the Customs Service (NCS), Consumers Pro­tection Council (CPC) and other relevant gov­ernment agencies to raid warehouses and confis­cate poultry products illegally smuggled into the country.
“Concerned that the economic impacts on the local industry is enormous, consider­ing that Nigerians lose about N1 million jobs and about $2.4 billion (approximately N399.4 billion) annually to importation and smug­gling of frozen birds, a figure said to be conser­vative, with the loss ac­tually estimated to be in the region of over N600 billion annually,” Amu­da-Kannike noted in his motion.
Meanwhile, the ma­jority leader of the House, Hon. Femi Gba­jabiamila, his minority counterpart, Hon. Leo Ogor and Hon. Nicholas Osai sharply disagreed on an amendment to the motion.
