  1. If we start to add this processed food to our short life span due to hardship, then the result will be mass murder.

    God help us…government pls make una no allow this o.

  2. Why should NIGERIAN food be processed outside and IMPORTED back into the country ? Our people don’t know how to cook again ? Sounds suspicious,. Yes the container should be subject to intensive scrutiny to ensure that no hanky pinky is in the offing.

  3. WHAT A SURPRISE? How could Indians send us the processed of the very food we already have in the locals? I mean, whats the point? That we don‘t know how to prepare our own food? And that they want to show us a more excellent way how to do so? I don‘t get it.

    Let me just take a stroll instead.

  4. ARE THEY THAT less busy? Otherwise, how do they think that I will choose to eat an Egusi and Ogbono soup prepared from abroad with some presevatives at the expence of my locally prepared delicious soup with some tantalistic BUSH MEAT as a brave Hunter?

    I think those people are crazy and thinking in reverse order. The govt should go sink that chemicals they called food in the sea and let the fishes have their early Christmas celebrations. Nonsense.

    This time, I take a stroll 4 real.

  5. Imported Nigerian food from India? We have let the outside world to take over our job, our freedom and the most important our foods. How could our traditional foods be imported from India? We are so accostume to importation of food in this Country that we think anything imported is edible. We have serious problem in this Country. This is a time when other government from foreign Countries are campaigning against processed foods. Processed foods are the major cause of Cancer worldwide.

    I’m very sure there are some Nigerians who are liaison with some crooked Indians to import poison for the people of Nigeria. If these foods have been successfully smuggled in, some people will still eat it and die of food poisoning. How can you import Jollof Rice or Ogbono? these food has already fermented within 24 hours of making them, if not, that means they must have added some chemical to preserve them which is very dangerous for our gut. We should be exporting these foods not other way round.

    Other Countries are now taking advantage of our bad situation but that doesn’t mean they should be sending us poison. They are not helping us, they are making it more difficult.

    Thanks to NCS for early detection.

  6. They must have prepared these with things highly unacceptable for consumption eg white seasoning and the likes. ENOUGH of the killings in the name of imported foods.
