Yesterday the House of Representatives considered the report of the Adhoc Committee Investigating the Safety of Carbonated Drinks in Nigeria under the leadership of Femi Gbajabiamila.

The House came up with the following recommendations:

1. That warning label be printed on Fanta and Sprite that the products are harmful when taken with Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) as from January 1, 2019.

2.That NAFDAC should compel producers/manufacturers to indicate all chemicals, acids, colorants and preservatives contained in their products on the packs or bottles no matter how negligible they are as from January 1, 2019.

3. That the regulating agencies be adequately funded by the government to enable them effectively monitor adulteration of all drinks produced and marketed in Nigeria.

4. That Expiry Date must be printed on all carbonated and non-carbonated drinks produced and marketed in Nigeria effective from January 1, 2019.

5. That standard review should be carried out biannually by the Regulating Agencies, particularly Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) partnering with NAFDAC.

6. That the House Committee on Health Services Place Special Attention to NAFDAC.

Nigerians dont read!! It wont change anything. There r countless videos being circulated online on how harmful carbonated drinks can be, it has not reduced the patronage and intake of these drinks and it still has not separated me from my darling coca cola. smiley

Increased funding to regulatory bodies is just to make some og a richer, cause even with the funds they have they seem not efficient in discharging their duties, rather they go to these organisations to get bribes under the guise of getting PR.

It's just that it has become the norm, else I will say that kids should be banned from going to school with these drinks. Just food and water. No snacks either. Some schools have banned snacks. I always urge parents to buy malt drinks for their kids to take to school instead of all these drinks. Better than these. A child that refused to eat his school food can be very OK dining a can of malt.

You said it. He'd been sheepishly copying America (NYC especially), thinking some of us don't notice.

Good development. But if the warning on cigarette packs and the "drink responsibly" caption on alcoholic drinks do not make a difference, I don't see how this one will.

Lagos people wey be say dem don chop gala and big cola finish for traffic before dem go check expiry date

We all our responsible for our actions anyway. I choose to live healthy

Do you need the senate to tell you how harmful these drinks are before you become wise?


Don't consumer these drinks like blood tonic. They are harmful to the body.
