ATTENTION: INDIAN GARRI BEING SOLD IN NIGERIAN SUPERMARKETS

By  |  6 Comments

This is sincerely an absurdity of monumental proportion and a shame. Our government and regulatory agencies (if they still exist) should cover their faces in shame. I would like to ask:we are indeed in a big mess in this nation. Can you imagine imported garri from India now selling in shops in and NAFDAC approve this? Habaaaaaa Gari again? So we finally have consigned our dear country to a dumping ground for all forms of Asian mindless madness. Nigeria is the worlds largest producer of cassava for crying out loud but here we are shamelessly displaying Indian made garri not corn flakes on our shelves. Do we still have the Customs service, do we still have NAFDAC and other such regulatory agencies. This is indeed a shame, that must be condemned by all well meaning, patriotic and passionate Nigerians. We do hope that if need be these government agencies who look the other way when this poorly produced products are hauled into our nation should get set to meet Nigerians on the street in hot protest. We think that it should now be enough of this broad day light rape of our economy and our collective wealth as a nation. In the same token, we call out on Nigerian to not just condemned this shameful act but to match such condemnation with a clear statement in action refusing to purchase such foreign made goods that Nigeria has better potential to produce. This call has become important because a great deal of Nigerians have a funny penchant for goods produced the shores of Nigeria even if these goods are substandard, and pose obvious threats to our and well being. It is instructive to note that today the WHO ranks Nigeria so low on some key health indices, that our dear Nation lags behind almost all much smaller African nations. Dear country men and women, here is a frantic and heartfelt call to redeem what is left of our national pride. Please may we all rise to condemn the importation of garri of all thing.

    What the hell is this? You have really said all that need to be said but sincerely its a big shame on our governments and Nafdac to have approved the importation of Indian garri to our country where we have the best garri. I just hope we Nigerians don’t guy this garri because its going to be a slap on our face too if we ever buy this Indian garri. What the hell is wrong with our governments? Do they want to finish this country? God of mercy, this is a big shame

    Weldone poster, to me this is a robbery on Nigerian citizens, we don’t need any Indian abi anyother Garri apart from our own, our government has failed us completely, i just hope they stop the importation of this Garri because we still love our Garri no matter what. I dont support this act by our government all.

    That means we must be extra vigilant ooo but how come those shameful things are smuggled in ?
    We have our own Garri that we can sell to the world and even consume and stop all these stupid acts of importation of home made consumables

    You’ve said it all and it’s a disgrace to Nigerians that such is happening when we are passing through recession.
