Kano directs for immediate closure of bakeries, restaurants, others
An order has been made by the Kano State Consumer Protection Council, KCPC for the immediate closure of all restaurants, bakery homes, drinking water producing companies and other food processing companies without health certificates.
Hon. Dr. Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, the Acting Managing Director of the Council, gave the directive on Friday afternoon after the expiration of a two-week grace period issued to all concerned.
Dan’agundi said the order became pertinent in view of a recent discovery of hepatitis B and other dangerous communicable diseases patients working at such restaurants and other places mentioned above.
He made it clear that a matching order has been given to his men to clampdown and shut down such premises that are not certified fit to run such business by the State Health Ministry.
This is to further safeguard the lives and health of the people of the State against contracting diseases as a result of patronizing such business premises.
