Agriculture: POFON Warns Ministry of Mass Importation Threats

The attention of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has been drawn to the threat that mass importation and dumping of CPO poses to the Agricultural Transformation Agenda, ATA of government.

This warning was made by the Plantation Owners Forum of Nigeria, POFON.

The Forum cautioned the Federal Government to be wary of some companies in Nigeria, which have begun trading in imported Crude Palm Oil, CPO.

POFON also warned that any attempt to make the oil palm upstream value chain vulnerable would jeopardise the ATA, pointing out that there should be urgent government intervention, else, the country would stand to lose, when “CPO cabals emerge to take control and perpetuate the importation of palm oil in Nigeria.”
