Why US Rejected Nigeria's Yam - Audu Ogbeh by harbdulrasaq88(m): 11:26am On Oct 05, 2017
Nigeria's Minister of agriculture, Audu Ogbeh has said that the United States rejected yam exports from Nigeria because of their poor quality.


In June, Nigeria exported yams to China, United Kingdom and US as part of efforts to reduce dependence on oil and increase income from the agricultural sector.


The Minister vowed to investigate both the exporting company and officials of the ministry’s department of quarantine for allowing “such substandard good to leave the shores of the country”.


“Some consignment of yams were exported from Nigeria to the United States and according to reports we have today, they were found to be of poor quality,” he said.




“We will be investigating both the company that exported it and our quarantine department to check and find out why such a consignment left here.”


Ogbeh also said the price of rice will reduce substantially in the “next one month”.


The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Nigerian Customs Service, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) were charged with the responsibility of ensuring that yams exported were properly checked and certified.


Others are Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Service (NAQS), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), National Agricultural Seed Council (NASC).

I remember asking the sense in exporting yams then while the price of yam skyrocketed locally.

The implication is that all the yams sent to the US was a waste of efforts and resources while we are made to pay indirectly for those delusional lapse.

We need fire brand economy drivers. shocked

The worst agriculture minister infected by the spirit of dullard

From wanting to import grass for cows to suggesting compulsory grazing land in every state for the murderous herdsmen and now yams.
This govt has failed from head to toe.

Abeg let me ask. How many tubers of yams have we actually exported and how much have the ministry of Agric spent on advert and media propaganda of our yam exports. sad
If we minus the amount spent on promoting this yam export on every media outlet from the sales made, will there be any profit truly made?
