The Federal Government has reacted to rumours that the bags of rice distributed to various states were expired rice.
Speaking today, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Social Development and Disaster Management, assured that all the rice distributed to states, were certified fit for human consumption.
This she said, while addressing newsmen in Abuja today.
Farouq claimed that the rice was accessed by the National Agency for Food Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), before they went sent out.
According to her, “ we all know if we keep rice or grain it is bound to change colour but that does not mean it is unfit for human consumption”.
