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.
