‘EU may lift ban on smoked catfish, beans in 2019’

The Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has says that the European Union (EU)’s ban on dried beans, smoked catfish and other agricultural produce from Nigeria may soon be lifted.

Mrs Heather Akanni, the Technical Adviser on Quality Control and Standardisation to the Minister, Mr. Audu Ogbeh, gave this assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Akanni spoke on the sidelines of the Agro-Processing, Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Improvement Support (APPEALS) of the World Bank Assisted Projects’ Second Implementation Support Mission.

The EU’s ban became effective in 2015 after it found residues of harmful pesticides applied after harvest on dried beans exported by Nigerians.
