Garri sellers deny knowledge of Indian garri
As the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control(NAFDAC) prepares to visit Delta markets in search of Indian garri allegedly imported into the Nigerian market, garri sellers in the popular Okere market, Warri have called on the government agency to beam its searchlight elsewhere.
Our correspondent who visited the market, spoke with the sellers who expressed their views.
Some traders who spoke attributed the development to federal government's failure to provide adequate policing at the borders which has led to the importation of the product.
According to them. if NAFDAC goes ahead with its threat to invade markets in the state, it will help in also detecting substandard goods and bring perpetrators to book.
