FG denies flooding market with poisoned rice

The presidency has denied that it had imported and flooded the nation’s markets with genetically modified rice.

Director-General of the National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA), Doctor Rufus Ebegba, cleared the air at a news conference in Abuja, while reacting to an online news platform which alleged the Federal Government through a firm had flooded the nation’s market with poisonous genetically modified rice.

Ebegba dismissing the report, said no genetically modified rice had either been imported or released officially into the country, adding that no genetically modified rice has been commercially released anywhere in the world. 

He said the report was intended to cause unnecessary panic and called on Nigerians to disregard it.
