Government Bans Sale Of Foreign Rice In Markets

The Ebonyi state Government is to enforce its ban on the sale of foreign rice in markets and other outlets in the State. Gov. David Umahi made the disclosure on Monday. According to him, the order would soon be enforced to ensure that the residents patronised home-grown Ebonyi Rice to buy Nigerian to grow the Naira.

He said:

“I will personally lead a task-force, consisting of the State Executive Council members to various markets and enforce the order. Individuals who are selling the produce will provide certification of its quality because most of the rice brought into the state is not parboiled.

Any rice that is not parboiled after six months turns to chaff as most of them brought into the country stay for about 10 years before being imported. The rice then becomes poisonous and we have banned cooking of non-Ebonyi rice inside the state’s Government House, hotels and public functions.

The governor remarked that the state had three functional rice mills and would inaugurate mills in the 13 LGAs of the state before the end of 2017.”
