TV Report: The GMO controversy

Campaigners against the adoption of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Nigeria have taken their demands to the Minister of State, Environment, Ibrahim Usman Jibril. The groups are demanding increased funding to research institutions to encourage home-grown technology to boost the country’s food security.

The Minister assured the group of government’s commitment to upholding standards on scientific findings while appreciating concerns raised over the safety of the GMO technology, which began about 37 years ago, compelling groups in Nigeria to continue to demand accountability from the government.
