The Minister of Science Technology and Innovation, Sen. Adeleke O. Mamora, said, the Federal Government has put in place, mechanisms to combat the effects of handling toxic materials by unskilled chemical practitioners in the country by formulating a policy document that would sanitize the system.

The Minister who spoke in Kano during a two-day Stakeholders Validation/Workshop on the Draft National Policy on Chemical Technology Document, said, President Muhammadu Buhari has mandated the ministry to create ideas about strengthening the populace and draft policies that will empower entrepreneurs in the country.

Speaking shortly after a field visit, the Minister, represented by the Director, Chemical Technology, and Senior Technical Adviser to the Minister, M.E.J Bassey, expressed worry over how toxic chemicals are being mishandled as well as what he described ‘disorganization’ amongst the chemical practitioners.

“We have designed the policy and the Minister sent us to continue the workshop on producing a policy document on chemical technology. So, part of the documentation aspect of the policy will be to have site visits to ensure participants really know what we are talking about when we see the chaos in the management of chemicals within communities.

The Chairman, Galadima Market Chemical Practitioners, Kano Mustapha Sha’aibu Suleman applauded the moves by the Federal Government noting that the coming of the delegation has further exposed them to things they were not aware of hitherto.

“It is a good thing that the FG is working to sanitize the sector through which we believe more job opportunities will be created.”
