The House of Representatives, on Wednesday, called on the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control to stick to its resolution and lift the ban on sachet alcoholic beverages and pet bottles.
The Chairman, House Committee on NAFDAC, Regina Akume, gave the charge at a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday.
The House had on March 14, 2024, asked NAFDAC to lift the ban on the production of alcohol in sachets and pet bottles of less than 200ml.
The resolution by the House followed agitation and protests by distillers, who said the ban would throw 500,000 workers out of jobs and ruin N800bn investments.
Speaking on Wednesday at the news conference, Akume said the ban came at the wrong time considering the economic situation in the country and asked that NAFDAC should rather enforce regulations and access control such as the establishment of licensed liquor stores/outlets in local government areas across the country.
