Ban on imported sugar stays – NSDC Boss

The ban on imported packaged sugar into the country by the Federal Government has not been lifted, the Executive Secretary/CEO, National Sugar Development Council (NSDC), Latif Busari  has said.

Busari advised importers of sugar to either produce in Nigeria or move their products elsewhere, saying this position is in line with Section 9.3.1 (1V) of the Nigeria Sugar Master Plan as approved.

“We have nothing against any particular brand of packaged sugar; what we are saying is that importers of sugar in retail packs should invest in local packaging facilities within and bring their equipment to Nigeria to produce under the plan,” he said.
