He also highlights some activities lined up for the year 2020 and the future of agricultural exportation in Nigeria.
"Nigeria records decline in agro export rejection."
Year 2020 was declared by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Year of Plant Health. As the competent authority on plant health and the National Plant Protection Organization for Nigeria, @NAQS has the onerous responsibility of galvanizing policymakers, stakeholders and the media to bolster advocacy and support for plant health policies at all levels in Nigeria.
The Director General, @NAQSng joined other participants on the 10th of January, 2020, in a one-day retreat to preview the Plant Quarantine Department's Work Plan for 2020.
Resource persons trained the participants on the testing and detection of GMOs, biosafety dimensions of GMO development and consumption and the state of agricultural biotechnology, among others.
@NAQSng organized a Sensitization Workshop on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) for its staff members. This programme is one of the many capacity building opportunities designed to equip NAQS personnel to effectively execute the Agency's mandate.
The end of the year is an opportune time to express compliments to important people in our lives. The Director General thanks everyone for their diligence and contributions to the impressive achievements of the Agency in 2019. He wishes all members of the close-knit NAQS family a Merry Christmas.
Participants formed 6 sub-committees based on the 6 objectives of the International Year Plant Health 2020. Each sub-committee subsequently brainstormed on their respective work-plans and presented a report to the Committee of the whole. @NAQSng is represented on all the sub-groups for coordination.
@NAQSng hosts a follow up meeting on the constitution of a National Steering Committee on the International Year of Plant Health 2020. In attendance at the meeting are stakeholders, comprising key Ministries, Departments and Agencies; research institutes; NGOs and individuals.
