Ban

By Aderogba George

The agency announced this in a statement signed on behalf of the Director General, Mrs Mojisola Adeyeye, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.

The agency says it has implemented the ban because Nigeria is a signatory to the protocol.

NAFDAC called on farmers, agro-input dealers and exporters of agricultural produce to use alternative pesticides that were cheaper, safer and more effective.
